To avoid periodontal (gum) disease, it is essential that you practice good oral hygiene habits and you eat a balanced diet. Our dentist will also recommend that you attend your regular dental appointments every six months at our office. If necessary, Dr. Justin Bauer and our team at Bear River Family Dental can also provide deep cleaning services, such as scaling and root planing, to help you return to optimal oral health. If you have any questions about treating and preventing a disease like gingivitis in Brigham City, Utah, please contact us today at 435-723-6120.
