Periodontal Disease Treatment in Collinsville, OK

The team at Africa on Main in Collinsville is dedicated to helping you improve your overall oral health, which means taking care of your teeth and the tissues, gums, and bones that surround and support them. We aim to prevent and, if necessary, treat periodontal (gum) disease. We offer scaling and root planing, deep cleaning services, to help you avoid the risks associated with periodontal disease, including:

  • Tooth loss
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease

As part of the scaling procedure, our hygienist will remove tartar (hardened plaque) from the tooth’s surfaces. If you require root planing, that will involve smoothing the surfaces of the tooth roots and removing any infected tooth structure. To avoid periodontal disease, it is important to maintain a good hygiene routine at home, involving daily flossing and brushing, as well as to visit the dentist on a regular basis. Please call our office today for more information on periodontal disease treatment.
