If your periodontal disease is more moderate to severe, you may require a scaling and root planing treatment. When your gums recede and pockets form, plaque can get underneath the gum surface and begin to build up on your tooth’s roots. To remove this plaque and other harmful material, Dr. Bui will often perform a scaling and root planing treatment. Our periodontist will evaluate your oral health and determine if you could benefit from a scaling and root planing in San Jose, California. Should you require one, we invite you to visit AZ Dental for your treatment to ensure that you receive the highest-quality of care and treatment possible. For additional information, we welcome you to contact us at 408-247-5500 and schedule an appointment today.
