Deep Tooth Cleaning
When there are deep pockets along the tooth roots due to bone recession it is impossible for the patient to properly clean and keep the gum tissue free of inflammation. A deep cleaning is necessary to remove the inflammation and debris and sometimes this would be done prior to gum surgery.
When do you need a periodontal treatment?
Here are the recommendation of Dream Smile San Diego Dentists about periodental treatment:
Periodontal treatment should be done on a regular basis as part of your regular checkup plan. Regular cleaning, when combined with good oral hygiene, will improve the overall health of your teeth and gums. If regular care has not been done and the patient does not have good oral hygiene practices, more intense periodontal procedures may be required to return the gums to a healthy state.
Left untreated, periodontal disease will result in the loss of bone and eventually your natural teeth.
