Dental Cleaning, regular and deep cleanings
Deep cleanings, including scaling and root planning, may be needed. An ultrasonic devise that incorporates water pressure and vibration to remove the deposits is used in addition to manual instruments.
A new addition at our disposal is dental laser technology. This technology allows us to eliminate bacteria lodged in the gums. This increases gum and bone health and longevity. Before your appointment, your gums and teeth will be irrigated with a special prescription grade liquid medication. This will reduce the bacteria count and will require you to refrain from eating or drinking for at least 1/2 hour after the treatment to maximize the benefits of this treatment.
Once the deep cleaning is completed a periodontal maintenance program is established to retain the benefits of the deep cleaning. We work together to help you maximize the benefits.
On occasion Arestin, localized antibiotics, may be recommended in areas that show deep pockets and resident bacteria colonies.
Preventative, biannual, “regular” cleanings are offered for those with healthy gums that are maintaining good home care and regular cleaning visits.
