Periodontal Therapy in Millbrae, CA
Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to early loss of teeth, foul breath, pain when chewing, and oral infections. Your gums are as vital to your oral health as your teeth and should be kept healthy.
Some patients are prone to accumulating more bacterial deposits in their gums and may need a deep cleaning.
During a deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, we clean underneath your gums to remove the bacterial deposits that cannot otherwise be removed with a toothbrush, floss, or other home care methods. Patients are numbed with a gel during this process to eliminate discomfort. After all the bacteria is removed, the inflammation in your gums is reduced and your gums are allowed to heal on their own and become healthy again.
Schedule your appointment with Donald Yang, DDS at (650) 583-2584 for a consultation to start this process of restoring the health of your gums.
