You may be surprised at the number of ways you can end up with gum disease. It can be a genetic problem or even brought on by hormonal changes. But for the most part, it is caused by a buildup of plaque and tartar on a person’s teeth. That may in part be due to due to poor oral hygiene, but it can also be an effect of not keeping your regular appointments with our dentist. Dr. Kaz offers scaling and root planing in Hockessin, Delaware, to keep your teeth and gums healthy and you can call 302-235-7645 to make your appointment.
