Periodontal Solutions: It’s All About The Cleanings

March 14, 2017

If you’re worried periodontal disease is something that can affect you (or that has already begun to impact your oral health), we encourage you to take a deep breath, relax, and schedule a visit. As for what you can do, remember that your dental hygiene commitment is paramount. As for the treatments with our practice that can either help you prevent gingivitis and eventual full gum disease (or treat it), it’s all about dental cleanings. Learn more!

Traditional Cleanings

As you already know, avoiding periodontal disease relies partly on your efforts at home to keep your teeth as clean as possible. Your brushing and your flossing both contribute greatly to the removal of inflammation-causing plaque that can stick to teeth, turn into tartar, and accumulate. The worse things get, the more inflamed and diseased your gums become until the problem leads to extensive damage. Keep your smile clean and there’s no problem. Of course, in addition to home care, you need to come in for traditional cleanings to prevent gum issues. This is a key step because we carefully and completely remove any remaining plaque or tartar that you simply cannot brush or floss away.

Deep Cleanings

Already dealing with periodontal disease? Has gingivitis just made an appearance? When your gum health is in danger, it requires a deep cleaning to get the healing process started. During this type of cleaning, we remove all of that accumulation we talked about that builds up beneath your gumline where you cannot reach it. Once your smile is clean, you may either heal or move forward with any additional necessary care.
