Is the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease. Long term gum care is incredibly important for overall health. Our hygienists are experts at scaling and root planing, which is a “deep cleaning” of gum/tooth structure to treat periodontal disease without surgery. The goal of this procedure is the removal of bacteria and endo-toxin by-products (poisons) on the root structure underneath the gums. We would much rather you did not need that though! Our amazing hygienists and their thorough periodic care will help you prevent it.
