If our dentists and team diagnose you with gum disease, one of the first treatments that may be recommended is scaling and root planing. This treatment helps fight periodontal disease so that you can halt further spread of the condition and begin regaining your oral health. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Christy Chen and associates and learn more about scaling and root planing in Escondido and San Diego, California, call A+ Dental & Implant Center today.
