Maintaining your gums after the onset of gum disease can be quite challenging. Gum disease is a severe dental concern that can affect people of almost any age. Patients would be advised to undergo routine cleaning and examination if they are sufferers of mild gum disease to ensure that your gums and teeth remain healthy and stable.
Symptoms of gum disease
Your gum disease may have originated due to bacterial buildup along the gingival margin. This can lead to extreme damage and deterioration of your gums unless proper treatment is done. Some of the symptoms of gum disease include:
- Redness and bleeding
- Loss of teeth
- Loose teeth structures
Deep cleaning is also known as scaling and root planing. It is generally advised for a patient who is diagnosed with periodontal disease. The dentist would administer a local anesthetics before commencing the cleaning procedure. During your in-depth cleaning session, we may even use lasers to help sterilize deep and contaminated gum pockets. Deep cleaning aims at restoring your teeth health by eliminating bacteria and plaque.
Patients would be advised to revisit depending on individual cases.
