They provide important support and protection for your pearly whites, and without proper care at home, they can actually develop an infection that can lead to bleeding, swelling, and ultimately tooth loss. If you’re noticing that your gums feel more sensitive lately, or if you see pink in the sink whenever you brush or floss, contact us today. We can provide the care you need to stop these issues and avoid much more serious ones in the future.

Scaling & Root Planing
Gum disease is primarily caused by a buildup of plaque and tartar below the gum line, and to remove it, our team can perform a deep cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing. First, the harmful substances are removed, and then the roots of the teeth are slightly reshaped and smoothed out. This prevents bacteria from accumulating under the gums in the future, plus it allows them to heal more quickly.
