While regular dental cleanings are important for oral and overall health, sometimes you need more involved periodontal (gum) care. That’s where "deep cleanings" (also known as scaling and root planing) are necessary to regain and maintain optimal oral health. Periodontal disease (gum disease) can cause bacteria to accumulate along the gum line, leading to inflammation, gum recession, bone loss and infection, and ultimately, tooth loss. Periodontal deep cleanings can eliminate this buildup and help to prevent the disease from progressing.
During a periodontal deep cleaning at Mi Smile Family Dental, our skilled team will utilize specialized instruments to remove plaque and tartar from both above and below the gum line, and a numbing agent may be used to keep you comfortable. Additionally, depending on the complexity of your cleaning, multiple visits may be necessary to complete the deep cleaning process.
The advantages of periodontal deep cleanings are numerous. By eliminating harmful bacteria and debris from beneath the gum line, deep cleanings help prevent additional damage to the gums, teeth, and surrounding bone. Furthermore, deep cleanings can help alleviate bad breath, making your mouth feel fresher and cleaner, as well as helping to reduce the likelihood of other dental issues developing.
