When a buildup of plaque and tartar irritates and affects the gums, a useful treatment our dentist can provide is scaling and root planing. This removes the buildup on the teeth both above and below the gumline, allowing for a smoother, more sanitary surface that the gums can bind to. If you are in need of a scaling and root planing in Butte, Montana, please call Silver Creek Family Dentistry today at 406-494-7058 to explore your options with Dr. Tyson Gundersen.
