Untreated plaque growth along teeth and the gum-line can lead to bacterial infection of the gums. When this happens, deep pockets can form as your gums recede away from your teeth, leaving both exposed to further decay. Gum disease is best treated when detected early, so it is imperative to follow a schedule of two dental visits a year. Our experienced team will remove any plaque as we clean your teeth, as well as treat any signs of gum disease during our examination.
