Our skilled dental team can remove plaque and tartar that have accumulated below the gum line by performing a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. This procedure is often performed to help patients who have developed gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease. If you have noticed inflammation, bleeding, or tartar buildup along your gum line, contact St. Marys Dental Center at 785-437-2771 and schedule an appointment with our dentists to learn if you would benefit from scaling and root planing in St. Marys, Kansas.
