Health care experts estimate that 3 out of every 4 people in the U.S. will develop some level of gum disease at some point during their lives. This dangerous condition has been linked to tooth loss and other larger problems in the body. That’s why we’ve decided to share a video from the ADA about the scaling and root planing procedure that we utilize here to restore gum health in most cases. If additional care is needed, we can always prescribe an antibiotic to kill any harmful bacteria that remains. In some situations, we may even utilize laser dentistry to remove your infected tissue. One way or another, you can trust that we’ll get you smiling big again. So, check out the video clip below, then call Highlands Ranch Smiles in Highlands Ranch, CO at 720-644-8186 or fill out our online form to schedule an appointment for gum disease treatment.
