If you are suffering from gum disease, it’s important to seek treatment right away. Left untreated, it becomes more difficult to address. The initial stages of gum disease are easy enough to reverse on your own at home.

When your periodontal disease has progressed to its later stages, it requires powerful cleaning instruments combined with years of education. This is one of the many areas where Dr. Popkova excels. She utilizes ultrasonic scaling and root planing to break up the hardened plaque (tartar) on your teeth that’s causing your gum disease.
An ultrasonic scaler produces a low frequency with sound waves that break up the buildup on your teeth. Once tartar has formed, it cannot be removed with a toothbrush. As such, you need to seek a dental professional who specializes in ultrasonic scaling and root planing.
Root planing serves to smooth out the roots of your teeth so that new plaque and tartar can’t easily form. This preventive measure ensures that you will leave My Merrimack Dentist with a happier and healthier smile.
During treatment, debris is safely removed from your teeth as they are cleaned. What’s more, any surface staining can be reduced or eliminated, as well. This results in your teeth looking brighter and healthier.
If you have gum disease, it’s important that you contact us right away. By getting treatment, you can effectively prevent tooth loss while keeping your smile looking its very best.
