What Is Involved in a Periodontal Deep Cleaning?

Periodontal Deep Cleaning in Boston MA Area

Untreated periodontal or gum disease can lead to long-term problems like tooth and bone loss. Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. offers periodontal deep cleaning at Anjum A. Ansari DMD General & Cosmetic Dentistry for residents in Boston, Massachusetts, who need this treatment to prevent their teeth and roots from becoming damaged. If the teeth and gums are not cared for appropriately, there is a good chance that your teeth may become loose and start to move. Over time, teeth can be lost, and your bite patterns altered to the point where jaw pain becomes chronic and uncomfortable.

Annual Dental Exams

Annual dental exams give your dentist a chance to identify any potential problems before they become too severe. During the exam, your dentist will clean the teeth, removing any plaque or buildup that may be present. The mouth’s soft tissues are also checked to ensure there is no irritation or erosion that may be damaging to the teeth and jawbone. If any issues are noticed during the exam, your dentist will develop a treatment plan that can be put in place to help correct the problem and speed up the healing process.

Good Oral Hygiene

One of the best ways to prevent periodontal disease is to regularly brush and floss your teeth. Brushing your teeth twice a day is needed to keep food from finding its way in between your teeth and under the gum line. It’s also vital that you floss your teeth as well. Flossing removes small pieces of debris that can work their way deep into the tissues between teeth where your toothbrush may not be able to reach. Using a good mouthwash that the American Dental Association has approved is also a plus.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planning are two effective treatment options that will allow the dentist to reach pockets of debris that have made their way under the gum line. These two treatment options go deep under the gums to ensure that no bacteria or food debris can remain in place long enough to begin to do any damage to your gum tissue, the roots of the teeth, or the jawbone.
