If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease our dentists may recommend scaling and root planing to help fight the disease and improve your oral health. This treatment is often one of the first options recommended for gum disease and may be combined with other types of treatment to provide you with the best possible results. To make an appointment with Dr. Benjamin Gilbert and Dr. La'Chanda Akers and learn more about scaling and root planing in Wilmington, Delaware, call Family Dental Center today at (302) 656-8266.
