Do you suffer from gum disease? If so, the staff at Foothills Dental might suggest you come into our office for a periodontal scaling in Marble Hill, GA. What is a periodontal scaling? It is a highly-effective procedure that is capable of treating mild to moderate gum disease. It is especially effective when dangerous gum pockets have formed between your teeth and gums.
The gum pockets caused by periodontal disease allows for tartar, plaque, and other bacteria to settle between your gums and teeth. If given enough time, these toxins can eventually work their way to the roots of your teeth, which can kill the entire tooth and cause anything from pain to heart disease. Clean the bacteria out of your gums by scheduling an appointment with us.
Stopping Gum Disease in Its Tracks
After numbing your gums, our periodontist will get to work gently removing all of the calcified tartar and debris from both above and below your gumline. The removal of this bacteria will help you clean your mouth and reverse the damage caused by periodontal disease. Furthermore, we can provide antibiotic fibers that can be placed to prevent infection when healing larger gum pockets in your mouth.
There are many reasons you should consider having our periodontal team provide scaling treatments to your mouth when you are dealing with gum disease. Schedule an appointment with us to learn more about the benefits of our treatments, including:

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Harmon and his staff! He has always been very kind and concerned and he does not ever advise anything that is not necessary. The staff is great and Dr. Harmon’s assistant Leslie is the best!! She is so sweet and so knowledgeable and very caring about her patients. So glad to have found a great practice!

Professional excellence doesn't negate a homey atmosphere. The staff are accommodating, courteous, helpful and pleasant and Dr. Harmon imparts his thorough knowledge of the particulars of maintaining excellent dental hygiene in a friendly, informative fashion. The practice makes good use of communications technology to ensure clients know the whats and whens of their dental appointments and the need for any follow up. They are conveniently located at the corner of GA Hwy 53 and Steve Tate Road. I'm more than happy to recommend their services.
