Periodontal care can help protect your gums. Regular checkups and screenings are the best way to catch gum disease. Gum disease (periodontitis) can occur and progress with little to no symptoms. The disease affects both the gums and bone surrounding the teeth and eventually leads to tooth loss. Harbor Dental can help prevent periodontal disease and its related complications through periodontal therapy and individualized care.
- Deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) to remove tartar above and below the gum line
