At the first indication of a gum infection, Dr. Preethy Jacob Kunthara may recommend scaling and root planing, a deep cleaning procedure performed by our team to remove plaque from below the gum lines. Scaling and root planing can halt the spread of infection and preserve your gums and teeth from further damage, preventing the need for our dentist to perform more extensive treatment. Please contact Simon Dental Care at 480-833-0880 if you have noticed signs of red, irritated gums, as you may benefit from scaling and root planing in Gilbert, Arizona.
