When there is a buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth, this is not only bad for the health of the teeth but can also be detrimental to the state of the gums, resulting in receding gumlines, gum disease and more. To treat this, our dentists might recommend a scaling and root planing, which removes this harmful buildup from the teeth both above and beneath the gums. If you have buildup on your teeth and think you might need scaling and root planing in Riverton, Utah, please call Silverwolf Dental Spa today at 801-254-3490 to set up your next appointment with Dr. Jason Wareham or Dr. Andrew Smith.
