Helping you treat gum disease.

Gum disease or inflammation is caused by plaque buildup, which can cause the gums to pull away from the teeth and form pockets where the plaque gets trapped. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to bone and tooth loss, so this is where scaling and root planning comes in. Through scaling, our dentists can remove all the plaque and tartar above and below your gumline before smoothing out the teeth roots, reattaching the gums and teeth with the help of root planing.
