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
Staff was professional and very friendly. My daughter was nervous about going to the dentist but she felt very comfortable and had a good time.
If you are in need of dental care, do not hesitate to make your appointment with the office of Dr. Scott Powers. The entire office is professional as well as kind. I have received excellent care, and I'm so happy with Dr. Powers and his staff watching out for my teeth. :)
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Scott Powers since he opened his practice. I would highly recommend his office. Dr. Powers is skilled, professional, and trustworthy. He has provided excellent care for routine work as well as been easily accessible in some urgent situations. The office staff is welcoming and helpful. Tonya is always great to deal with and so accommodating with scheduling. We see Alysia for biannual cleanings and she does a wonderful job. She is friendly, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. Our family relocated to a city north of Indianapolis, 120 miles away, and have switched providers for all medical care but continue to make the four- hour round trip to see Dr. Powers because the quality and professionalism at his office is unmatched.
Great experience. Very nice and knowledgeable people.
Always well taken care of by Leslie English & Dr Powers. Highly recommend them if you’re looking for a dentist.
