gum treatments and deep cleanings

Adults lose more teeth due to periodontal disease than any other condition. Suffice it to say, taking care of your gum health is important. Deep cleanings and other forms of gum treatment allow us to do just that.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Gum Treatments and Deep Cleanings?

If you have gum disease, you will need some form of treatment. The solutions can range from non-surgical procedures like scaling and root planing to surgical procedures like soft tissue grafts.

You may be experiencing gum disease if your gums:

  • Bleed easily

  • Feel swollen or tender

  • Hurt when you chew

  • Look receded

Patients often need to address gum disease before getting implant restorations.

What to expect from these procedures

Gums don’t grow back, which means gum diseases are permanent. That said, we can:

  • Relieve symptoms

  • Reduce inflammation

  • Prevent further gum deterioration

How many office visits you need and how long the results will last varies depending on the procedure in question.

If you’re getting deep cleanings, you will likely need to get them once every three months. Over time, you may be able to get fewer deep cleanings per year, depending on the state of your oral health.
