Periodontal Therapy

When certain bacteria are present around the teeth, regular brushing, flossing and traditional dental cleanings cannot reach them.  This bacteria, if untreated, can affect not only the mouth but also the entire body, including the heart.  If a dental exam indicates that this bacteria is causing damage to the supporting tooth structures, we may recommend periodontal therapy, also called scaling and root planing.  This means the area will be numbed and deep cleaned.
