Scaling & Root Planing
Gum disease is a massive problem in the United States, and it is not uncommon for patients to need some extra help with their periodontal care. At Twin Oaks Family Dental, we can provide that help with deep cleanings that remove bacteria beneath the gums. These treatments, also called scaling and root planing, function to remove the bacteria that lead to bone loss and eventual tooth loss. Deep cleanings can halt and even reverse gum disease. Combined with your oral care at home, we can help ensure you consistently have a healthy mouth. Don’t neglect your biannual regular cleanings and checkups, and remember to call us right away if you notice any gum swelling, bleeding, pain, or bad breath.
