If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, one of the first treatments our dentists may recommend is scaling and root planing. This gum disease treatment works to thoroughly clean your mouth to remove disease-causing bacteria and plaque and begin the process of improving your oral health. Call Simply Smiles Dental at (503) 244-4837 to make your appointment with Dr. Melissa Beadnell and Dr. Carly Christoferson and learn more about scaling and root planing in Portland, Oregon.
