Deep Teeth Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing)
If it has been a while since you have scheduled teeth cleaning, you may have stubborn calculus or plaque buildup. Or, you may have gum disease (periodontal disease). If so, we recommend a deep cleaning to remove the buildup and improve your teeth’s performance.
Deep cleaning often includes scaling and root planing, as well as tooth polishing after the procedure. Scaling is a non-surgical way of removing the bacteria-filled plaque in hard-to-reach areas of your teeth. Root planing goes deep into your gum line to remove calculus and other substances in areas that your toothbrush often misses.
While scaling and rooting produce some discomfort, it also prevents tooth decay from damaging your teeth any further. We can preserve your teeth for many years to come using this procedure.
Teeth cleaning includes ongoing oral exams. Oral exams are the best way to keep your teeth looking great. We can review your previous records and perform an exam to check your teeth and gums’ overall health. If we spot any signs of cavities or gum disease, we can discuss your options for addressing the problem.
Oral Cancer Screening
We perform an exam to look for any signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. We look for abnormal cells in your mouth that could cause problems down the road. If we identify mouth cancer early, we have a better chance of removing it and providing a cure.
Your dental exam and teeth cleaning may also include diagnostic x-rays that help us detect tooth decay, tumors, cysts, or bone loss around your teeth. We can also assess the condition of your roots and deep tissue.
Gum Disease Evaluation
Gingivitis (gum disease) can cause irritation, redness, and swelling around the base of your teeth. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to gum periodontitis or even tooth loss. We perform a thorough assessment of your tooth to identify any signs of gingivitis.
