If you suspect that you are one of the millions of Americans who are currently in the throes of gum disease, we can help you save your smile before it’s too late. In fact, at our office, we have a safe and effective gum disease treatment known as scaling and root planing. In the ADA video clip below you can find out more about this deep cleaning technique for eradicating pockets of periodontal infection. The short and long of it is that plaque and tartar are carefully removed from your gums, then your tooth roots are cleaned to prevent the formation of more harmful bacteria. Take a look at the clip and then be sure to call Smiles of Punta Gorda at 941-585-0424 to request your next dental appointment in Punta Gorda, FL.
