Scaling & Root Planing
A scaling and root planing treatment is sometimes called a “deep cleaning,” and this is because it targets the plaque and bacteria located below the gum line. With scaling, an ultrasonic cleaner will be used to break up and remove all the plaque and tartar deposits located around your gums, and then root planing will be used to gently smooth out the rough surfaces of your teeth’s roots.
At Waxhaw Dental Center in Waxhaw, NC we can also apply a topical antibiotic to reach the small spaces where bacteria can hide. This periodontal treatment only takes a couple of minutes, but it continues working long after you leave our Waxhaw, NC dental office. We may need to make another application three to four months later, but this is an effective way to kill the bacteria in your mouth and give your gums a fresh start.

"Overall just excellent. Excellent staff. Excellent service. Very caring of their patients."
"Everyone is very pleasant and welcoming. I am very satisfied with the service and treatments that I always receive. I highly recommend this Dental Fac..."
"My sister had a filling come out of her tooth and we called Waxsaw Dental and they got her in the next morning. Since the Doctor she had gone to for years had retired, she was scheduled with Dr Marshall Earnest and his assistant Jenna. They were both very kind and professional. They explained all of the options clearly and were able to fix the tooth the same day. Since I wasn't the one being worked on, I was able to watch the procedure. They worked together seamlessly with such skill and calmness. It was very impressive and I would certainly recommend them."
"Waxhaw Dental Center staff are friendly and kind, and do excellent work. I'm especially pleased with my crowns. We pay out of pocket, so if the prices were a bit more affordable I'd give them 5 stars."

"I was bumped due to a Hygienist calling in sick. I waited 4 weeks for call back to reschedule.. Never heard back, so I had to call and make my own short notice cleaning appointment. I received new a hygienist and new DDS. The cleaning was a little rough but it was thorough. Customer service for client retention needs work."
