Most of our adult patients require more than a standard dental cleaning, they require something deeper, known as scaling and root planing. At Nicholas Dose, DMD Family Dental Care, our professional hygienist, along with Dr. Dose can remove hardened calculus or tartar buildup, increasing the health of your gums and your overall oral health. Healthy gums are vital to the health of your mouth. Gums that are infected, known as Gum Disease, can not properly support your teeth, and to remove the infection, we need to remove the source of that infection. Scaling will remove the source, and root planing will promote healing, while also decreasing the chance of future infection.
