Which is why actions to remove these lawyers can be so beneficial for the stability of your smile. Our team could conduct a scaling and root planing to remove buildup from the teeth and the roots, often in one to four visits, depending on how severe the buildup is. We take care to keep you comfortable too. Afterward, routine cleaning every three to four months could be helpful too!
