Gum disease has several different causes, but the biggest cause is the buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth. If our dental team, Dr. Tab Bingham, our hygienists Chelsea and Lisa discover that you are in the early stages of gum disease, he may be able to treat it by removing the plaque and tartar through a process known as deep cleaning or scaling and root planing. To find out if scaling and root planing in Magna, Utah, at our state-of-the-art facility can benefit your oral health, call 801-250-7422 today to schedule an examination at Bingham Dental & Orthodontics.
