Our goal is simple: to help you keep your mouth clean and your smile looking its best through every season of life. Still, if you seldom come to see the dentist for a checkup, no matter how much daily work you are doing at home, it becomes harder for us to achieve those outcomes on your behalf, and issues like gum disease and cavities can more easily attack your teeth and gums.
If you are already experiencing problems like periodontal disease (an advanced form of gum disease), we can deliver a modern solution designed to get you back on track fast. At Silver Leaf Dentistry, Dr. Wallin performs gum disease treatment with a mixture of proven methods and state-of-the-art instruments. The process is divided into two related steps: scaling and root planing.
Dr. Wallin will use the gentle and very much noninvasive vibrations of our ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque from your tooth surface and any that is hanging out 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.
