An active treatment for periodontal disease provided by Dr. Ramsay and her hygienist is scaling and root planing. At Evans Street Dental, we will scale away harmful tartar from the surface of teeth and smooth their roots in order to prevent tartar from sticking again. Dr. Natalya Ramsay and her hygienist can heal infected gums of periodontal disease when you visit her for scaling and root planing in McMinnville, Oregon.
