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