Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, we will clean and smooth this area with special instruments to ensure that the area is completely spotless. If this area is not kept clean the entire area can become irritated with the bacteria that resides in the tartar and plaque. It’s very important to have your dentist check this area if you have bleeding during brushing.

What Our Patients Say
I have always like Thompson Dental but today they went above and beyond to squeeze me in for a quick cosmetic procedure. I am very appreciative and grateful my tooth is repaired before the weekend.
Great caring office and wonderful staff. Dr. Thompson is very compassionate about his profession and his patients! I would and have recommended his office to many people.
We've been going to see Dr. Thompson for about 5 years! Love his professionalism and nice bedside manner. All the staff are polite, compassionate, very nice and helpful. Definitely recommend!
