One of the treatments Dr. Jesse Taylor may recommend for gum disease is periodontal deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing. Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment that involves removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and root surfaces to stimulate your gum tissue to heal. This periodontal treatment may be performed on its own or in combination with another treatment.
