Antalya Deep Dental Cleaning
The bones and gum tissue surrounding your teeth should fit snugly around them. When you have periodontal disease, these bones and gum tissue are destroyed, causing pockets to form around your teeth.
Over time, these pockets get deeper and deeper, making room for bacteria, leading to even more bone and tissue loss. Eventually, if too much bone is lost, dental professionals may recommend that you have those teeth extracted.
To avoid any possible problem, it is advisable to carry out thorough cleaning. Deep teeth cleaning, also known as gum scaling, is a dental treatment designed to clean between the teeth and gums down to the roots.
During a standard dental cleaning, a dental hygienist or dentist cleans the front, back and sides of the tooth above the gum line.
This same process is carried out during deep cleaning of teeth, but the dentist also continues down to the root of the tooth, under the gum, removing tartar and other accumulations of the "pocket" that have formed between. the root of the tooth and the gums.
When you have gum disease, the pocket or space between your teeth and gums opens up, becomes wider and deeper, trapping tartar and plaque.
A set of healthy teeth and gums have a pocket or space that is 3 millimetres or less, but if you have gingivitis or other gum problems, the pocket gets larger. Dentists often recommend thorough teeth cleaning if your gums have separated 5 millimetres or more from your teeth and their roots.
Deep tooth cleaning is designed to treat gum disease like gingivitis and prevent it from getting worse and requiring surgery or other more extensive procedures. It can therefore help reduce the size of the pockets and slow or stop the progression of gingivitis.
Remember, we all have a lot of bacteria in our mouths, even when we have perfectly healthy teeth and gums!
