Combatting Gum Disease in Lower Plenty

Deep Teeth Cleaning Lower Plenty

We can perform a deep cleanse of your teeth and gums to prevent and treat gum disease

Gum disease (periodontal disease) is a condition that causes the gums and bone to detach from the teeth. It is usually due to lack of home and professional care.

Preventative Cleanings and Periodontal Assessments

Without good dental health and preventative care, there’s no way to be sure that you are free of gum disease. Through modern preventative dentistry, Majestic Smiles can help you avoid bone and tooth loss. During these visits we will measure your gum attachment to pinpoint areas of infection.

We will also screen for symptoms of periodontal disease, like:

  • Gums that bleed or are swollen
  • Gum recession
  • Tooth mobility
  • Pockets developing under the gumlines
  • Bad breath
  • Heavy tartar buildup

The teeth are cleaned to maintain a healthy environment that is free of disease. If disease conditions exist, a deep cleaning will be necessary.

Deep Cleanings

During a deep cleaning we will numb your mouth and perform a deeper scaling around each root surface. This removes disease-causing bacteria so that the gums can tighten themselves around the teeth again – preventing tooth loss. If extremely heavy build up is present, the teeth may seem more mobile afterward. However, leaving that build up in place will simply lead to more rapid bone and tooth loss.

With regular maintenance and dedicated home care, our deep-cleaning patients can go back to a six-month preventative schedule.
