To treat gingivitis, our dentist may suggest a deep cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing. First, your teeth will be cleaned of plaque and tartar all the way down to the roots. Your tooth roots are then smoothed by our dentist, which makes it hard for plaque to stick to them. Smooth roots also gives your gums a clean surface to reattach to.
We encourage you to contact Sterling Dental
