When visiting Periodontist Henderson, it is very important to know the history of the patient, current medications, and other medical conditions before starting with a specific procedure.

It starts with gum examination, to check for thinning gum lines, assess for the closing of the mouth when biting, and looseness of the teeth. A probe is inserted between the spaces of the gum and teeth to check the periodontal pockets. This will determine the gum’s health. Patients with extensive gum disease from mild to severe, or sometimes extreme cases are the ones who should visit a periodontist.

Understanding deep teeth cleaning

This is a dental treatment made to clean teeth between the gums all the way down to the roots. While the standard cleaning is ongoing, the dentist or dental hygienist does the cleaning. The dentist continues to go deeper to reach the pockets that formed in the middle of the teeth and gums. The pockets become wider and deeper tapping tartar and plaque

The dentist recommends deep teeth cleaning if the gums are separated more than 5 millimeters away from the teeth and roots. Requires more than twice the visit to the dentist. The first session will be for the gums and the second one will be for the root planning. Follow-ups will depend on the dentist’s assessment. It is designed to treat gingivitis and keep them from becoming worse and the need to go for surgical procedures. The need to switch to diets is necessary due to the anesthesia during the 2 sessions. Avoiding cold foods and beverages because of heightened sensitivity. Deep teeth cleaning Henderson will be there every step of the way.
