What is Deep Teeth Cleaning?
Deep teeth cleanings are a type of dental cleaning needed for people who have signs and symptoms of periodontal disease (aka Gum Disease). It’s a complex disease that is most prominently caused by poor dental care and hygiene. When someone isn’t routinely brushing, flossing, or practicing good oral health habits, plaque and bacteria are not removed as they should be. This causes the body to form an inflammatory response to get rid of the bacteria which it is unable to accomplish. It cannot be removed naturally and ends up damaging sensitive gum tissue, surrounding bone, and everything in its path. This immune reaction can lead to significant bone deterioration, tooth loss, and infection if left untreated.
It’s also important to note that someone who has periodonatal disease can maintain their disease by getting perio maintenance cleaning, but can never have a routine cleaning after diagnosis.
