Scaling and Root Planing in Lawrence, KS
Gum disease is a massive problem among Americans. This issue is the chief cause of tooth loss, and gum infections can even affect your overall health. We provide deep periodontal cleanings, also called scaling and root planing, to combat gum disease at River Rock Family Dental.
Our team goes beneath your gum line during a deep cleaning to sanitize any pockets that have formed. This treatment will help to stop gum loss and resolve infection.
The early stages of gum disease often produce no noticeable symptoms, but even early gum disease can have long-term consequences. Brushing and flossing at home are important, but controlling and reversing gum disease can require professional care.
Be sure to have your regular examination and cleaning every six months, and call us right away if you ever notice any teeth or gum issues. You can reach us at (785) 856-8600.
