World Oral Health Day, observed every year on March 20th, is a global awareness campaign designed to promote knowledge about the importance of healthy teeth and gums — and the link between the condition of your mouth and the well-being of your entire body.

One thing research has increasingly made clear is that bacteria from gum disease can escape into the bloodstream and cause inflammation throughout the body. At Silver Leaf Dentistry, we can bring your gums back to health with scaling and root planing, a deep-cleaning procedure that removes plaque below the gumline and smooths the tooth roots.
