Deep Cleaning Your Teeth, When To Do It?

If you have neglected your gums, so much, that they are swollen and bleeding, it is possible that tartar and bacteria have succeeded in infiltrating into the gum. The diseased gums, if left untreated, seriously threatens the stability of your teeth and can result in tooth loss. Deep cleaning or gum curettage means the scraping of gum wall to remove inflamed soft tissue (plaque and calculus) that may have collected there. 
With a high-precision instrument, we will carefully clean out the gingival groove freeing it from all bacteria. 

Advantages of deep cleaning/curettage-

  • Deep cleaning improves the stability of the teeth and the health of the gums.
  • It provides a deeper and more thorough cleaning as it eliminates bacteria from your mouth and infected tissue and promotes healing and reduction in the space between the gum and the tooth.
