Deep Cleaning with Ultrasonic Technology
Much like regular dental cleaning, deep cleaning involves removing harmful oral bacteria that could prove harmful to your teeth and gums. The difference, though, is that deep cleaning involves removing plaque and tartar from the roots of your teeth rather than their crowns. Because the roots of your teeth are underneath your gums, deep cleaning is a more complex procedure and may take more than one visit. Once completed, however, deep cleaning significantly reduces your risks of developing gingivitis, or of it becoming more serious if it has already developed.
The Benefits of Ultrasonic Scaling
At our office, Dr. Browne utilizes advanced ultrasonic technology to more gently break up deposits of plaque and tartar on your teeth roots. Rather than physically scaling oral bacteria from the roots, the technology uses gentle sound waves to break up plaque and tartar, making it more comfortable to remove. Depending on the severity of your gum disease, ultrasonic scaling may be all you need to treat your condition, or it may be just the first step to controlling your gum disease to avoid complications like tooth loss.
Reverse or Control Gingivitis More Comfortably
When gingivitis forms, you may need deeper than usually cleaning, known as scaling and root planing, with the help of ultrasonic equipment.
