Did you know that gum disease can take hold whenever plaque is allowed to develop into tartar and then into pockets of infection that like to gather below your gum-line? True story! And the results can be devastating: tooth loss, bone loss, and major health issues elsewhere in the body. However, there can be a happier ending for you if you are a regular patient of ours. You see, to stop this process from unfolding while it is still in the early stages, we can usually perform a “deep cleaning” on your teeth and gums. This basically entails scaling (removing) plaque and tartar from around and below your gum-line, then planing (smoothing) your teeth roots to help prevent bacteria from collecting there in the future. For more details about the scaling and root planing process, take a look at the video clip below that comes to us from the ADA. Then call us today at 812-645-0620 to schedule your consultation. Second opinions are always free too!
What Our Patients Are Saying
Always well taken care of by Leslie English & Dr Powers. Highly recommend them if you’re looking for a dentist.
Very happy with how my appointment went. Alysia always takes great care of me and keeps my smile looking good! Highly recommend Doc Powers and the team.
We love visiting Dr. Powers’ office for our biannual cleanings. I have gone here for years and started bringing my son as soon as he got his first teeth. He’s now almost 6 and has had a few fillings and pulpectomies, all going better than I could have ever imagined for a 4-5 year old! He loves going to the dentist because of our positive experiences at Dr. Powers’ office. We especially love visiting our favorite hygienist, Alysia. She’s gentle and so sweet with my son. The hospitality of every staff member is top-notch. If you’re looking for an excellent dentist office, Dr. Powers is a great choice!
