Whenever you are next at our office for an oral exam, we’ll be able to check the area between your teeth roots and gums for any signs of infection, since early-stage gum disease often lurks inside your mouth without exhibiting any obvious symptoms. Don’t worry, in many instances, we can utilize a gum disease treatment known as scaling and root planing, which as the ADA video clip below demonstrates, is a deep cleaning method for taking care of periodontal pockets of infection. Take a look at the video then call East Limestone Family Dental at 256-229-3416 for an appointment in Athens, AL or contact us online.
