At Premier Dental of Circleville, we understand the importance of maintaining good oral health. That's why we offer a comprehensive range of dental services, including deep cleaning periodontal therapy. This procedure is designed to remove stubborn plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line, helping to prevent gum disease and other oral health problems.
Deep cleaning periodontal therapy, also known as scaling and root planing, is a non-surgical procedure that involves the removal of plaque and tartar from below the gum line. This is done by using specialized dental tools to scrape away the buildup of bacteria and other harmful substances that can lead to gum disease and tooth loss.
The procedure is typically done under local anesthesia to ensure the patient's comfort throughout the process. Once the buildup has been removed, the teeth and roots are smoothed to prevent further accumulation of plaque and bacteria. This helps to promote healing and prevent the progression of gum disease.
Deep teeth cleaning is typically recommended for patients who have been diagnosed with gum disease or are showing signs of gingivitis, such as bleeding gums, bad breath, and swollen or tender gums. It may also be recommended for patients who have a history of periodontal disease or who have difficulty maintaining good oral hygiene habits.
Gum disease is a serious oral health problem that can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and other health problems if left untreated. Deep cleaning is an effective way to prevent the progression of gum disease and improve oral health.
In addition to preventing gum disease, deep cleaning periodontal therapy has a number of other benefits, including:
