When the plaque and tartar on teeth build up and infect the gums, a harmful, deteriorating condition can develop called gum disease (or periodontal disease). Luckily, Dr. Jennifer E. Taylor can help heal your gums with scaling and root planing in Mason, Ohio. This treatment involves the removal of tartar and the smoothing of teeth roots to prevent plaque from sticking there again. Set up an appointment with our dentist at Taylor Family Dentistry if you want us to heal your gums.
