Visit our dentist for a deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing
With proper oral hygiene, periodontal disease is easily preventable. In its earliest stages it can even be reversed. If you have noticed the initial signs of gum disease, call our office at 508-830-3339. Our dentist, Dr. Sandra L. MacDonald, can see you for an appointment for a deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Scaling and root planing is a two-step treatment
- Scaling: In scaling, we remove the plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth with handheld or ultrasonic instruments.
- Root Planing: Root planing involves smoothing rough spots on the roots of the teeth and removing any toxins to decrease inflammation of the gum tissue.
