Creating Beautiful Smiles. Delivering Quality Care.
Periodontal services are better known as a deep cleaning for your mouth. Deep cleaning is the process in which plaque, calculus and other debris are removed ultimately protecting you from gum inflammation and/or periodontal problems.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease (deep cleaning), is an infection of the tissues that support the teeth. Our teeth are supported by gum tissue, connective fibers which anchor the tooth root into its socket, and bone. Superior Cosmetic and Family Dentistry help patients with proper gum care that will keep these tissues healthy in order for you to keep your smile for a lifetime.
At Superior Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we provide regular examination of your gums during checkups with a periodontal probe and x-rays, if necessary. When periodontal disease is diagnosed, our Maryland dentists provide several types of treatments, depending on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Treatment is key to preventing periodontitis, an inflammation that can erode the ligament and bone beneath the gums and result in tooth loss.
Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease) is diagnosed by your dentist or dental hygienist during a periodontal examination. This type of exam (Periodontal Examination) should always be part of your regular dental check-up. A periodontal probe (small dental instrument) is gently used to measure the pocket depth between the tooth and the gums. The periodontal probe helps indicate if pockets are deeper than three millimetres. The depth of a healthy gum measures three millimetres or less and it does not bleed. As periodontal disease (Gum Disease) progresses, the pockets usually get deeper.
Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and Root Planing is a careful (deep) cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and calculus [tartar] from deep periodontal pockets and to smooth the tooth root to remove bacterial toxins.
