If you haven’t been keeping up with routine teeth cleanings every 6 months, our dentists may recommend gum disease treatment.
Benefits of a Deep Cleaning
Periodontal disease is caused by untreated dental plaque on the surface of your teeth and gums. Over time, this plaque hardens into what we call tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. Fortunately, we are able to remove tartar buildup both above and below the gum’s surface to help you avoid some of the harmful effects of periodontal disease.
People with periodontal disease tend to have deep gum pockets around their teeth that collect plaque. During your appointment, your dentist will clean these gum pockets before smoothing out your tooth roots. Smoothing the tooth roots will help receding gums reattach to teeth. Deep cleaning teeth will help you prevent issues caused by periodontal disease, such as further receding gums and tooth loss.
Our dentists offer a range of services to help you maintain a beautiful healthy smile. To schedule your appointment with one of our Westland dentists, call Parkside Dental Team at (734) 261-6060.
