What is Periodontics?
Most people are familiar with routine dental cleanings and hopefully schedule them at least every six months. Unfortunately, when you suffer with gingivitis and gum disease, a routine cleaning isn’t always enough. A deep cleaning targets larger amounts of bacteria and tartar buildup, often also needing to target pockets in the gums with a treatment known as scaling and root planing.
When inflammation occurs in the gums they separate from the tooth, creating pockets where tartar and bacteria build up. When this occurs, your teeth and bone are at risk. Scaling and root planing targets the teeth below these pockets. Scaling removes plaque from the tooth surface and in the pockets while root planing addresses plaque and tartar on the surface of the roots.
Pocket irrigation is a dental treatment used in both traditional dental cleanings and deep cleanings. This treatment uses a powerful stream of water to flush out plaque and tartar deposits, as well as infection causing bacteria. In severe cases of gingivitis, pocket irrigation can also apply antibacterial agents to kill remaining bacteria, further reducing the risk of infection.
