Over time, plaque, tartar, and dangerous oral bacteria can build up on your teeth, sometimes even if you have good hygiene habits. This can lead to gum disease, which in turn can lead to tooth loss. Don’t let it come to that.
For more information on gum disease treatment, watch this video from the ADA, which explains the scaling and root planing process as a means of reversing the dental damage experienced by many patients in similar situations.
When you get here, our dentists will help you by smoothing out any rough spots on your teeth that disease-causing bacteria can cling to and by clearing out any bacteria that is still lurking in the pockets of space between your teeth and gums. Finally we will fill those pockets up with Arestin®, an antibiotic that will help your mouth heal in no time.
