Pocket Irrigation

Prevent and treat gum disease with pocket irrigation

At-home brushing and flossing is essential to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Unfortunately, that may not always be enough. Plaque and bacteria can accumulate on the teeth and into spaces between the teeth and gums. In most cases, regular teeth cleanings can help keep this under control. However, that is not always the case, and, in cases of severe gum disease, deep cleanings are necessary. At New Leaf Rohnert Park, we offer deep cleanings with pocket irrigation to help combat gum disease and get you on the road to good oral health.

FAQ

What is pocket irrigation?

Pocket irrigation, also known as oral irrigation or dental water jet, is a dental procedure used to clean plaque and bacteria from the pockets between the teeth and gums. This technique involves using a high-pressure stream of water or antimicrobial solution to flush out bacteria, food particles, and debris from the pockets, helping to reduce inflammation and improve gum health.

How does pocket irrigation work?

Pocket irrigation works by using a specialized dental instrument, such as a water flosser or an oral irrigator, which directs a pressurized stream of water or antimicrobial solution into the pockets between your teeth and gums. This stream helps to dislodge plaque, bacteria, and debris that may be trapped in these pockets, reducing inflammation and promoting healthier gums.

Who can benefit from pocket irrigation?

Pocket irrigation can be beneficial for individuals with periodontal disease, deep gum pockets, or those who have difficulty cleaning hard-to-reach areas with traditional brushing and flossing methods. People with braces or dental implants may also find pocket irrigation helpful for maintaining good oral hygiene. However, it’s essential to consult your dentist to determine if pocket irrigation is suitable for your specific needs and oral health condition.

Is pocket irrigation a replacement for regular flossing?

While pocket irrigation can be an effective way to clean hard-to-reach areas and reduce bacteria in the gum pockets, it should not replace traditional flossing entirely. Flossing is still important for removing plaque and debris from between your teeth and along the gumline, which helps to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Pocket irrigation can be used as a supplement to your regular oral hygiene routine, but not as a complete replacement for flossing.

Can I perform pocket irrigation at home?

Yes, pocket irrigation can be performed at home using a water flosser or oral irrigator. These devices are designed for home use and can be found in most drugstores or online. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for using the device correctly and to consult your dentist for guidance on the best way to incorporate pocket irrigation into your oral hygiene routine.
