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!
