One of the first treatments that Dr. Mahesh Solanki may recommend after you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease is scaling and root planing. Scaling and root planing removes plaque and tartar from your mouth to encourage proper healing, and may be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with another therapy, such as Arestin®. To schedule an appointment with our skilled dentist and learn more about scaling and root planing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, please call Whitman Dental Center at 215-501-7156.
