Periodontal Health and Root Planing
Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, we will clean and smooth this area with special instruments to ensure that the area is completely spotless. If this area is not kept clean the entire area can become irritated with bacteria that resides in the tartar and plaque. It's very important to have your dentist check this area if you have bleeding during brushing.
