While there are a number of things that can cause gum disease, the biggest culprit is the presence of plaque and tartar on your teeth. If you are still in the early stages of gum disease, our dentists might be able to treat you with a process known as a deep cleaning or scaling and root planing in Sacramento, California. Our ultrasonic scaler can make this process easier and more comfortable than it has been in the past. To make your appointment with Dr. Peter Kim, Dr. Shah Khodai or Dr. Navid Torabian at Sierra Oaks Dental, call (916) 846-9828 and speak with a member of our team.
