Scaling and Root Planing

Gum disease can be caused by a number of different things including lifestyle choices, hormonal changes and even genetics. But for most people, the primary cause of gum disease is a buildup of plaque and tartar on the surfaces of their teeth. At Dr. Stephanie Gruenes Center for Cosmetic Dentistry we use a treatment called scaling and root planing in Becker, Minnesota, to clean the teeth and roots to combat the effects of periodontal disease. If you are in the early stages of gum disease and would like to learn more about this procedure, contact our team at 763-262-7645 today to schedule your visit with our dentist.
