Why Deep Cleanings are Necessary
In the early stages of periodontitis, there are few symptoms, and many individuals with the disease don’t seek treatment until their condition has worsened. If neglection continues, the plaque that builds up on teeth will harden, turning into tartar. Regular brushing and flossing will not be enough for the buildup to be cleaned away.
The scaling and root planing procedure is essential at this point due to the level of plaque accumulation that can compromise the health of your gums. These deep cleanings can halt the progression of gum disease and provide patients with a chance to achieve optimal oral health. Additionally, jaw function and the nerves that properly secure your teeth are protected.
When the initial signs of gum disease are discovered early on, Dr. Alex Noble can provide the right treatment recommendations to address you or your loved ones periodontal issue efficiently.
Our Treatment Options for Optimal Gum Health
At Loudon Dentistry, we provide routine periodontal maintenance and management treatment options for all patients, including dental scaling and root planing. Patients are given a local anesthetic to improve their comfort while undergoing treatment, which also allows our Loudon dentist to clean away the accumulation of calculus efficiently. Dental scaling involves removing plaque, tartar, and other bacteria from both the surface of teeth and below the gum line. Once cleaned, we polish the tooth to ensure less bacterial buildup in the future. To encourage proper healing and reduce pocket depth, root planing smooths tooth roots to prevent bacteria and plaque buildup.
To help promote proper recovery and control further infection, Dr. Alex Noble may refer our patients to a periodontist when periodontitis is present.
