It is common for patients to only consider their teeth when thinking about their oral health, but gum health has vital importance as well. Dr. Michael Funk may recommend scaling and root planing in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for those who need more comprehensive oral health care for their gums. These non-surgical periodontal deep cleanings are proven to inhibit any further spread of gum disease. Our dentist and team also offer them as part of periodontal maintenance care. You may learn more about scaling and root planing during a visit to Lancaster Smiles or by calling us today at 717-394-3592! We care deeply about every part of your oral health and want to keep your smile looking beautiful and feeling great.
