GUM DISEASE TREATMENT & MORE
The key to maintaining healthy teeth is healthy gums. And the key to healthy gums is regular brushing, flossing, and the professional cleanings you receive from the dentist or dental hygienist, including deep dental cleaning. It is all part of your preventive gum disease treatment. Most professional dental cleanings take about 25 to 30 minutes. This preventive gum disease treatment should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums, tooth decay, and tooth loss. Routine dental cleaning should include scaling, perhaps some minor root planing, and polishing. Scaling is a gum disease treatment process for removing plaque and tartar from all tooth surfaces on the tooth's crown.
ADVANCED PROFESSIONAL DEEP DENTAL CLEANING METHODS
Dental hygienists traditionally perform scaling by hand. However, new and advanced technology has led to more modern methods such as electric scalers. These sophisticated tools allow us to perform deep dental cleaning more efficiently and in less time. We've found that electric and manual scaling methods should be combined for in-depth dental cleanings and the most effective gum disease treatment to achieve the best results.
