While periodontal disease is one of the most common dental conditions, did you know that periodontal disease is nearly always preventable with a well-maintained oral care regimen, including biannual checkups with your dentist? If it has been more than six months since your last a checkup and cleaning, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at our Auburn Hills dental office for care.
The type of dental cleaning you receive in our Auburn Hills dental office depends upon your periodontal health. A routine cleaning and prophylaxis , removes plaque and stains from the teeth above the gum line, and only slightly below and is typically administered to patients who are not showing any signs of gum disease. A deep cleaning is performed when plaque and tartar beneath the gum line are causing inflammation and the onset of periodontal disease. A deeper cleaning, which is also known as a scaling and root planing, takes a somewhat more involved approach to remove bacteria, tartar, and harmful deposits under the gums and along the surfaces of the roots of the teeth. If left untreated, subgingival bacteria and plaque can lead to more advanced stages of periodontal disease and the loss of bone tissue and teeth over time. Fortunately, a deep cleaning along with a commitment to an effective regimen of brushing and flossing at home can help to halt the progression of periodontal disease.
