Dr. Brock Hyder will assess your teeth and gums to determine if you have gingivitis, swelling gums, or periodontitis, gum disease. If you have periodontitis, Dr. Hyder will perform a deep tooth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from gums. Anti-bacterial rinses and antibiotics may also be recommended by Dr. Hyder following the procedure.
If you have chronic gum disease or a condition like diabetes that comes with unique dental concerns, our team will work with you to personalize your care further. Routine checkups and dental care can be vital to ensuring the health of teeth and gums.
