Deep cleaning, also known as periodontal treatment, is a non-surgical procedure that helps to treat gum disease. This treatment involves a thorough cleaning of the teeth, gums, and the roots of the teeth to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria that have accumulated below the gum line.
During the deep cleaning procedure, our dental team will use special instruments to carefully remove the buildup of plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. This will help to prevent further damage to your gums and teeth, and promote healing of any inflamed or infected gum tissue.
At Arete Dental Studio, we believe in taking a proactive approach to your dental health. If you have signs of gum disease, such as bleeding gums, bad breath, or loose teeth, we recommend booking an appointment to assess your gum health and if required book your deep cleaning to help manage the disease and prevent further damage.
While there is no cure for gum disease, it can be effectively treated and managed with proper care and maintenance. Deep cleaning, combined with good oral hygiene habits, regular dental check-ups, and lifestyle changes, can help control the progression of gum disease.
Gum disease itself is not contagious, but the bacteria that cause gum disease can be spread through saliva, making it important to practice good oral hygiene habits and avoid sharing items like toothbrushes or utensils.
Research has shown that gum disease has been linked to other health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and even some types of cancer. Maintaining good oral health can help prevent these complications and promote overall health and wellbeing.
The length of treatment for gum disease varies depending on the severity of the condition. Mild cases of gum disease may be treated with a routine cleaning, while moderate to severe cases may require several appointments for deep cleaning and ongoing maintenance. Our team will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan and discuss the timeline for your specific needs.
After your deep cleaning, we will provide you with personalized advice on how to maintain good oral hygiene at home, such as proper brushing and flossing techniques, as well as regular dental check-ups and cleanings. If required – we will work with you to ensure you return for the correct intervals to maintain your gums and prevent re-activation of any gum disease.
