Not many people know that the primary cause of gum disease is the buildup of plaque and tartar on the surfaces of the teeth. In the very earliest stages, gum disease can be reversed and, when necessary, controlled. At Merrill Dental, our dentists, Dr. Daniel Merrill and Dr. Stephanie Merrill, and our team offer scaling and root planing in West Chester, Ohio, to do just that. Call 513-779-7711 if you have noticed the early indicators of gum disease.
