Deep Cleaning

Did you know that more than 64 million adults in the US are suffering from periodontal disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss? It’s true, and you may be one of them. Luckily, while it typically isn’t curable, periodontal disease is very treatable.

Schedule an Appointment

After the completion of your periodontitis treatment, you will be scheduled for regular ongoing maintenance care. These visits will involve a professional deep cleaning and monitoring of your oral health to ensure the disease does not recur and progress further.

Deep Cleaning

A deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is extremely different from your regular dental cleanings. While a regular cleaning cleans the surfaces of your teeth and between your teeth above the gum line, a deep cleaning removes all of the bacteria calculus (tartar), and debris that have collected under the gum line. If left untreated, your periodontal disease will advance as these particles destroy your teeth, surrounding gum tissue, and supporting bone.

We recommend scheduling your periodontal maintenance visits and your general dentistry visits on an alternating schedule. This ensures that you are receiving all of the proper care and treatments your oral health needs in a timely, consistent manner.
