Gum disease can be the result of personal habits, hormonal changes or even genetics. In most cases, though, the culprit is an accumulation of plaque and tartar on the surfaces of your teeth. Our dentists and the team at Vive Dental Day Spa offer scaling and root planing in Chevy Chase, Maryland, to help prevent or, in some cases, even reverse periodontal disease. If you have concerns about the health of your gums, call our office at 301-664-9695 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Janet Oyeledun or Dr. Dayo Ogunnaike.
