Deep Tissue Care

if-a-periodontal-assessment-and-dental-x-rays-indicate-active-gum-disease-we-will-recommend-a-process-that-is-commonly-called-a-deep-cleaningIf your periodontal assessment and dental x-rays indicate active disease, we will recommend a process that is commonly called a deep cleaning. Deep cleanings remove all disease causing bacteria below the gum lines and along the root surfaces. This creates a clean environment that can be managed on a daily basis, allowing the infection to reverse.

When left untreated, bone and tissue loss will only worsen. This creates a gradual reaction throughout the mouth, causing tooth mobility and eventually tooth loss. During a deep cleaning the area is completely numbed so that it can be thoroughly cleaned without any discomfort.
