Ever Wonder How Gum Disease Treatment Works?

Family Dentistry in Rochester, MN by Dr. Jim Gores of Lakeside Dentistry

Welcome to the online home of Lakeside Dentistry! Today we wanted to share a video link from our friends at the American Dental Association, in which they explain how standard gum disease treatments work. Check out the clip below then be sure to contact us to schedule your consultation with Dr. Gores. Once we have diagnosed the gum disease, we can offer an extremely effective treatment called scaling and root planing. For this procedure we will use special tools to carefully get below your gums to remove any lingering plaque, tartar, and bacteria. This is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical way to stop gum disease from destroying your smile and your overall health. And we can perform it right here in the friendly environment of our Rochester, MN office.
