It’s Not All About Your Teeth
There is no doubt that taking care of your teeth is important. But at Patrick Hunter Family Dentistry, your teeth are only one of our concerns. We are dedicated to the care of your entire mouth, and that includes your gums.
Your gums are living tissue, and gum disease can lead to tooth loss, even if you’ve never had a cavity in your life. It is vitally important to ensure that gum disease does not threaten your oral health. The answer to this concern is periodontal deep cleaning, also called scaling and root planing.
A scaling and root planing can help stop gum disease in its track and effectively address bleeding or sore gums. This procedure is not especially painful, but anesthetic is available for your full comfort. Dr. Hunter and his staff can easily perform this treatment at his office in the Franklin, TN area.
Even if you haven’t seen a dentist for years, it is not too late to do something about gum disease and potential tooth loss. Call us at (931) 451-5188 today!
