If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, our dentist may perform a scaling and root planing treatment to remove plaque and harmful bacteria from your mouth. Scaling and root planing thoroughly cleans your mouth of disease-causing factors so that you can begin the process of regaining a healthy smile. To make your appointment with Dr. Dana L. Greer and learn more about scaling and root planing in Lathrup Village, Michigan, call Gentle Touch Family Dentistry today at 248-552-0076.
