Premier Dental of Beavercreek is committed to offering comprehensive dental care that includes advanced periodontal therapy to address gum disease. Our team of skilled dentists and hygienists utilizes state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to ensure that our patients receive optimal results.
Deep cleaning periodontal therapy, also called scaling and root planing, is a non-surgical treatment for gum disease that involves removing plaque and tartar build-up from below the gum line and smoothing the tooth roots to reduce the risk of further infection and promote gum and bone healing.
We start the deep cleaning periodontal therapy process at Premier Dental of Beavercreek with a thorough examination of the patient's teeth and gums, which may involve the use of x-rays and other imaging technologies. Based on our evaluation, we create a customized treatment plan for the patient.
During the deep cleaning procedure, our hygienist uses special tools to eliminate plaque and tartar from the tooth surface and below the gum line. We may also use lasers to eradicate bacteria and reduce gum inflammation. After the procedure, we smooth the tooth roots to prevent bacterial accumulation.
Patients may experience some discomfort and sensitivity after the deep cleaning procedure. We may suggest pain relievers and/or antibiotics to help manage discomfort and prevent infection. We also provide instructions for proper at-home oral hygiene to maintain good oral health and prevent gum disease recurrence.
Deep cleaning periodontal therapy offers numerous advantages to patients with gum disease, including promoting gum healing, preventing further damage to the teeth and supporting bone, and reducing the risk of other health problems associated with gum disease.
