To help treat gum disease and eliminate plaque and tartar that can accumulate below the gum line, Dr. Annette Moranda may recommend scaling and root planing. We have a dental hygiene team that does our patients dental cleanings, scalings and root planning procedures. This procedure is incredibly effective at healing your gums and shrinking periodontal pockets.
