Protect the Foundations of Your Teeth

Gum disease attacks both your gum tissue and the bone around your teeth. You need both these tissues to keep your teeth healthy and stable so you can eat, speak, and feel confident in your smile. Our dentists at Bela Family Dentistry offers comfortable non-surgical treatment for gum disease in Florence, SC, including comprehensive deep cleanings, antibiotics, and scaling and root planing. If your gum disease has already progressed to advanced stages, we’ll provide surgical treatment to restore healthy gum tissue and bone. We personalize your gum disease treatment to ensure optimal results.

Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is the first step in treating gum disease and is a non-surgical treatment. We’ll first remove the calculus from the tooth surfaces using an ultra-sonic dental scaler, then smooth them with root planing to prevent plaque from collecting in the future.
