Periodontal Deep Cleanings

Periodontal disease, a more severe form of gum disease (gingivitis), is a condition that affects many adults and can lead to serious oral health issues if left untreated. At Dr. Ryan Trevino’s dental practice, we specialize in periodontal deep cleanings, a crucial treatment designed to combat the progression of gum disease and restore the health of your gums and teeth. As always, we prioritize your comfort throughout the entire process.

Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease begins with the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth, leading to inflammation of the gum tissue. If not addressed, this condition can progress to more severe stages, resulting in gum recession, bone loss, and ultimately, tooth loss. Periodontal deep cleanings are an effective way to halt the progression of gum disease and prevent these serious outcomes.

What is a Periodontal Deep Cleaning?

A periodontal deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a thorough cleaning process that goes beyond a standard dental cleaning. This procedure involves:

Scaling

The removal of plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline, reaching down to the bottom of each periodontal pocket.

Root Planing

Smoothing out the roots of the teeth to help the gums reattach to the teeth, reducing the depth of the periodontal pockets.

The Benefits of Periodontal Deep Cleanings

For those suffering from severe gum disease (periodontitis), periodontal deep cleanings provide an array of health benefits, including:

Halts the Progression of Gum Disease

By removing plaque and tartar buildup, this treatment helps stop gum disease in its tracks.

Prevents Tooth Loss

Addressing gum disease early with deep cleanings can prevent the severe outcomes of the disease, including tooth loss.

Reduces Bad Breath

Periodontal disease often causes persistent bad breath. Deep cleanings can significantly improve this condition.

Improves Overall Health

Treating gum disease can have positive effects on your overall health, reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other conditions linked to periodontal disease.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

Our team ensures that your periodontal deep cleaning is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
