Gum Disease Treatment – Attleboro, MA
Taking Care of Your Gums Protects Your Smile
While many people may not think about the gums that often, they are an incredibly important part of your long-term oral health. When gums become infected, they can actually put the rest of your teeth at risk. Without healthy gums, your teeth can even fall out, forcing you to rely on future tooth replacement later. With the help of scaling and root planing treatment, we can treat even the most severe effects of gum disease, so don’t wait to call our office if your gums feel tender or sore!

Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling is the process in which plaque and tartar is removed from both above and below the gum line. This prevents the infection from continuously spreading to other areas of the mouth and reduces inflammation of your gum tissue. The second part of treatment is root planing, which involves smoothing out the tooth roots so they can reattach to the gums. This prevents gum recession from continuing. Treatment is typically performed every three of four months.
