If you have a milder form of periodontal disease, our dentists may recommend a scaling and root planing treatment to remove harmful plaque and bacteria from your mouth. Scaling and root planing is often highly effective for the earlier stages of gum disease, and may be able to stop the disease from spreading further. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Ed Liebenthal or Dr. Seth Griffin and learn more about the benefits of scaling and root planing in Hartford, Michigan, call Hartford Family Dental Care at 269-621-6441.
