Wondering if you may need a deep clean in CA? Early symptoms of gingivitis and gum disease are:
As symptoms begin showing, they start out as gingivitis, an easily reversible condition that irritates the gums. If untreated, it can develop into gum disease/periodontitis which is not as easily treatable and will require a deep periodontal cleaning.
Periodontal treatment focuses on removing the harmful bacteria that is hurting the gums and creating a healthier environment for them. One of the most common ways to deep clean the gums and to help fight gum disease is through root scaling and planning. Through scaling, the built-up bacteria is removed using laser technology from the roots of the teeth in the afflicted area. Since roots are uniquely shaped, some have bumps and areas that gather bacteria too easily. Root planing uses laser therapy to remove bumps and irregularities in a tooth root’s surface to remove places where bacteria could quickly gather.
Utilizing laser technology for our periodontal treatment allows us to safely and effectively remove bacteria from below the gumline. Laser periodontal therapy is also much more comfortable for the patient and results in quicker recovery. Ready for your dental deep cleaning? Let us know!
