Around here, we have an effective gum disease treatment known as scaling and root planing that is both safe and easy. Here’s how it unfolds. First, Dr. Wallin will use the gentle vibrations of our ultrasonic scaler to eliminate plaque from your tooth surface as well as from below your gum-line. Then, he will perform a detailed cleaning of your tooth roots to remove bacteria from between your teeth and gums, reducing inflammation in your gums and making it harder for that bacteria to return to the area. In the ADA video clip below you can find out more about this deep cleaning technique ahead of your session with Dr. Wallin. So, please take a look at the clip and then be sure to call Silver Leaf Dentistry at 720-504-2539 to schedule an appointment in Longmont, CO.
