If you are doing your best to keep up with your oral health by flossing and brushing multiple times a day, you may still notice that you are having issues with your teeth and gums. In most cases, patients who notice that they are experiencing bleeding from the gums may be having issues with gum disease and it’s likely that they’ll need additional care to help alleviate the problems.
Patients who are experiencing bleeding excessive bleeding of the gums or other oral issues should give Watson Dental Care a call today at (407) 351-3213. In order to help you combat the problems that you are having with gum disease or gingivitis, we may recommend that you consider a deep cleaning treatment to get your oral health back into excellent shape.
Why Is A Deep Cleaning Required?
In the event that you have accumulated a moderate or heavy amount of buildup consisting of plaque or debris along your teeth and gums, a deep cleaning can help to freshen your teeth and eliminate the problems that you are having. The biggest concern is that many people don’t realizing that they are susceptible to this type of buildup, which is why they go extended periods of time without getting the appropriate care. Over time, buildup can result in what’s known as a “periodontal pocket,” and bacteria will start to infect the area.
During your deep cleaning treatment at Watson Dental Care, we will help to remove that buildup and plaque through a treatment known as a debridement. This process consists of the removal of periodontal pockets and deposits right below the gum line. The end goal is that you’ll once again have a healthy set of teeth and gums so that you can avoid the issues that come from gum disease.
How Is A Deep Cleaning Performed?
At Watson Dental Care, we want to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible during all of your treatments while in our office. Therefore, we may suggest that you consider getting a local anesthetic in order to reduce any discomfort that you may feel during the deep cleaning treatment. Once we’ve give you the anesthetic, we will then remove the bacteria buildup that is below your gum line. This will allow for the root of the tooth to smooth out and begin healing in an appropriate way.
Please keep in mind that a deep cleaning will do wonders for your teeth, but it may not be all that you need to do. Those who have had problems with gingivitis in the past may be susceptible to it again in the future. That is why we highly recommend that you come in and visit us every 3-6 months for additional care. We believe that we’ll get you back to an ideal level of oral health, as long as you work with us to make sure that your teeth and gums are clean.
