Enjoy Gentle Gum Disease Therapy to Revive Your Smile
At Silver Leaf Dentistry, Dr. Wallin performs gum disease treatment with a mixture of tried-and-true methods and modern, state-of-the-art instruments. The process is mostly divided into two related steps: scaling and root planing.
Dr. Wallin will use the gentle vibrations of our ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque from your tooth surface and 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.
If you are nervous when you arrive, we have several ways to help relieve your dental anxiety. We will also numb you if necessary for optimal comfort.
