To fight gum disease when it’s still mild, our dentist, Dr. Jordan Balvich, may recommend scaling and root planing to remove plaque, tartar and bacteria from all parts of the tooth. This can effectively stop gum disease in its tracks before it becomes a larger issue that endangers your health. If you are looking for scaling and root planing in Rensselaer, Indiana, give us a call at 219-224-3213 to schedule an appointment.
