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!

There is absolutely nothing to improve on! Dr. Powers and staff are so caring and kind. Options and procedures are well explained.
Very friendly staff, great atmosphere & an amazing Doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Scott Powers.
This was the first time I have been to the dentist since Covid. Dr. Powers and his staff were amazing! They were extremely friendly and really made me feel at ease. Lesli, my dental hygienist, was especially nice and was a great representative for the office. I highly recommend Dr. Powers and his staff for your dental needs.
Had a cleaning with Alysia and visit with Dr Powers today. So glad that I made that appointment! Alysia was very knowledgeable and thorough. Everyone from the receptionist to the doc are amazing! This office rocks!
I have a huge fear or the dentist but Dr.Powers and his hygienist Alysia made me feel comfortable and calmed my nerves . They made sure to talk with me before my appointment started to understand what was most important to me for my teeth. I would highly recommend them to anymore looking for a new dentist 😁
