Deep Cleaning

Also called scaling and root planing, a deep cleaning focuses on removing bacterial buildup from underneath your gums. This helps reduce inflammation and prevent the disease from spreading. This treatment is performed in our office and is a replacement for your regular dental cleanings.

You ask, we answer

What is gum disease?

Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. This disease occurs when bacteria-filled plaque and calculus build up along the gumline. These bacteria slowly eat away and damage your teeth, gums, and jaw bone.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease is typically caused by a variety of factors, including:

 

  • Inadequate oral hygiene
  • Smoking, vaping, and tobacco
  • An unhealthy diet high in sugar
  • Genetics
  • Certain medications and other health issues

Can gum disease affect my health?

Yes. Untreated periodontal disease is shown to cause systemic health issues. This disease has been linked to diabetic complications, strokes, and heart disease. To protect yourself, see a dentist often for an exam and cleaning.

Can I prevent gum disease on my own?

The bacteria that cause gum disease are often difficult to remove by brushing and flossing alone. Regular dental exams and cleanings help catch and stop gum disease in its earliest stages. This is always preferred because it allows for simple, non-invasive treatment options like Perio Protect.
