Determination of the periodontal status: In the course of the professional initial cleaning, the depth of the gingival pocket is determined with a special probe.
Root cleaning (scaling): Ultrasound and hand instruments (scalers, curettes) are used to remove tartar and bacterial plaque from the gingival pockets.
Operative intervention: Scaling treatment is not sufficient for deep pockets. Cleaning of the root surface must be done under vision.
Antibiotic therapy: In rare cases, the use of certain antibiotics may be necessary to eliminate particularly aggressive bacteria.
