Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth. Your gums are essential to oral hygiene as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Deep Periodontal Cleaning / Root Planning
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. This will have a detrimental effect not only on the pink bits (gums), but also on the bone holding teeth in place. Bone resorption due to periodontal disease will lead to tooth loss.
It’s very important to have your dentist check this area if you have bleeding during brushing.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
