Gum disease can be caused by a number of different things, but the most common culprit is the accumulation of plaque on the surfaces of your teeth. Our dentist can see you for an appointment for scaling and root planing in Plano, Texas, to control, prevent and in some cases, even reverse the early stages of gum disease. If you have noticed a problem with your gums, call Dental Renaissance at 972-423-0880 to plan your visit with Dr. Kari Blankenship.
