Periodontal Disease Treatment Framingham
Aside from proper dental care, we also educate our patients on oral hygiene maintenance. Our team will recommend techniques and products to improve your at-home dental care. In addition, treatment options like dental sealants and nightguards may be discussed. Other dental treatments such as scaling and root planing could benefit your gum health if signs of gingivitis are detected.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure where plaque and tartar are removed from below the gum line. In brief, special tools clean the root surfaces of plaque and tartar while smoothing down the surface. This prevents further bacterial buildup.
Oral Cancer Screenings
In addition, oral cancer screenings are conducted to further protect your health. Our team will evaluate your neck and oral tissues for lumps, patches, and sores. Moreover, those that smoke and consume alcohol are strongly advised to have a screening.
