To treat deep gum disease, our dentist may need to pull back the gums in order to scale and plane the roots underneath. This will reduce the spread of bacteria, slow the loss of bones, and even make it easier for you to perform more effective routine maintenance at home. If you have any questions for Dr. Kent Copeland about gingivectomy in Prosser, Washington, please contact Chardonnay Dental today at 509-781-6600.
