After you have been diagnosed with gum disease, one of the first steps Dr. Daniel Donoho may recommend is a scaling and root planing treatment. This periodontal treatment removes harmful bacteria and plaque from your mouth in order to kick-start the healing process and begin getting your oral health back on track. For more information about scaling and root planing in Sun City, Arizona, and to schedule a consultation with our dentist, contact Donoho Dental Associates, PC at 623-977-8323.
