Patients who need to receive treatment for gingivitis can come to Cowles Dental Care for scaling and root planing. Our dentist uses this procedure to clean plaque and tartar from the crowns and roots of teeth so it will no longer infect gum tissue. Call Dr. Lee J. Cowles, DMD at 503-255-1506 if you want us to treat your gingivitis with scaling and root planing in Portland, Oregon.
