For patients with more moderate or severe conditions of periodontal disease, Dr. Copenhaver, Dr. Hood, and Dr. Bordlemay may recommend a scaling and root planing treatment. In this procedure, our dentists and team will gently remove plaque that has built up along the tooth’s surface and on the roots. This will help restore your oral health and prevent your condition from getting worse. If you have periodontal disease, we welcome you to contact Copenhaver Dental at 912-756-2936 and schedule your appointment with our dentists to see if you could benefit from scaling and root planing in Richmond Hill, Georgia.
