What is Periodontal Cleaning?
Also known as deep cleaning, periodontal cleaning is a dental technique used by a periodontist or hygienist to not only clean your teeth but also check the health of your gum, bone, and pockets around your teeth to identify any signs of gum disease.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with Periodontal Cleaning?
Periodontal cleaning can help treat oral conditions such as gingivitis, gum disease (periodontitis), and bone loss. This type of deep cleaning will also help to keep your teeth in optimal health, preventing gum disease in the future.
Who Needs Periodontal Services?
Patients who have periodontal disease and experience pain or discomfort form its symptoms should seek out periodontal services as soon as possible to prevent permanent damage to their teeth, gums, and overall smile. By removing tartar and plaque from the gums and teeth, periodontal cleaning can help prevent bacteria in the mouth from leading to gingivitis and other oral conditions. If left untreated gingivitis will develop into periodontitis.
How Often Should I Get Periodontal Cleaning?
Periodontal cleaning targets the health of the gums as well as the teeth but is not often needed for patients whose oral health is in overall good condition. For patients who are prone to gum disease or often suffer from the symptoms of gum disease, it may be best to seek out periodontal treatment every three months. On average, most dental patients should have deep cleanings at least twice a year to prevent the formation of bacteria which can lead to infection. Periodontal cleaning will not only improve your oral health but can also lead to a more radiant, fresh, and healthier-looking smile.
