The best treatment for gum disease is to have outstanding oral home care from the start. Brushing twice per day for 2 minutes and flossing at least once per day are an integral part of keeping your teeth for the rest of your life. If gum disease is present, professional cleanings may be necessary to restore your oral health and maintain it over time. Our licensed dental hygienists will assess your gum health and provide a specialized cleaning to remove plaque and tarter from around your gum line. Once the plaque and tarter are removed, your teeth will be smoothed by polishing them.
