At Harlow Dental, our number one priority has always been the health and safety of our patients. As a leading healthcare provided in our community, we wanted to reach out to all of our patients regarding the COVID-19 virus, and let you know the steps we are taking to alleviate any potential concerns. Effective immediately, Harlow Dental practices will limit our practice to EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE. So please call us right away if you are experiencing a dental emergency!

We are postponing all non-urgent dental care at this time in accordance with the recommendations of the American Dental Association and the North Carolina State Board in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The preventative measure will be in effect until April 16, 2020. Again, thank you for being a valued member of the Harlow Dental family.

Scaling and Root Planing for a Deep Cleaning

Often, patients are told they need a deep cleaning due to mild or severe gum disease. If it has been a while since you've seen a dentist, then it is likely that you have more build-up than normal. Scaling and root planing is a procedure that allows dental hygienists to debride and clean teeth under the gums and around the bone level. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and will allow your gums to heal back to their normal positions and reduce inflammation and future bone loss. In this case, the patient had not seen a dentist in 7 years. Over that time, plaque hardens up and turns into hard calculus. Eventually, it discolors and bacteria start eating away at the gum tissues and discoloring teeth. But in just one visit, the mouth is transformed and this patient is back on track to maintaining good periodontal health
