If gum disease is caught early, one of the most effective ways that our periodontists can treat and possibly reverse it is through a treatment known as scaling and root planing or a deep cleaning. This is a very effective treatment that can be done in two treatments at Tucson Dental Implants and Periodontics and may include an antibiotic treatment. If you have noticed the signs of gum disease, call 520-327-0263 to make an appointment with Dr. Clark Mackelprang or Dr. Clyde Robinson to learn more about scaling and root planing in Tucson, Arizona.
