Professional Cleanings & Periodontal Therapy
Dental Cleanings Q & A
Why do I need a professional dental cleaning?
Regular toothbrushing and flossing after meals is essential for removing food particles and to sweep away plaque — the sticky, bacteria-filled film that coats our teeth.
Plaque causes the bacteria in food to release acids that attack the enamel on your teeth. Over time, the acid erodes the enamel, forming tiny holes called cavities. Bacteria can pass through the cavities into the nerve- and vessel-rich pulp, which may become infected.
Plaque that isn’t removed can harden into a brown crusty covering called tartar. Both plaque and tartar can lodge under the gum line, leading to gingivitis, otherwise known as gum infection.
You cannot remove tartar with a toothbrush or dental floss; it must be chipped off with special scaling tools in the dentist’s office.
During a regular checkup and dental examination, you receive a professional cleaning that includes high-powered brushing, plus a scaling procedure that removes surface tartar from the teeth.
However, if you have tartar underneath the gumline, or if your gums are pulling away from your teeth or show signs of infection, a different soft tissue management cleaning might be necessary to avoid permanent gum degradation, bone loss, and tooth loss.
What is a “deep cleaning”?
A "deep cleaning" is not a better cleaning or a fancier cleaning. It is a soft tissue management therapy to avoid further deterioration of the gums and soft tissue.
A periodontal evaluation and radiographs allow your hygienist and your dentist to properly diagnose the status of your bone and gums. If your gums are infected and there is bone loss, a deep cleaning procedure is the only way in dentistry to eliminate accumulated bacteria, plaque, tartar and active gum infection in efforts to avoid further bone loss and gum infection. If bone loss is too advanced, evident tooth mobility, and visible plaque and bleeding, the patient might be referred to the specialist of the gums to be properly treated.
Chronic periodontitis affects 57.2% of United States residents over the age of 30. Saliva pH and saliva DNA testing might help to determine the type of bacteria in your mouth might help to control and balance periodontitis. Schedule your consultation today by calling our office to provide all the options that might be conservative and necessary for the proper treatment. Ozone therapy is also a powerful, natural, disinfectant used during cleaning with clinical proven results.
