After you have been diagnosed with gum disease, a professionally trained, knowledgeable dentist like our doctors at Tyhee Dental will want to perform some very specialized deep cleaning. This type of cleaning is more intensive than a normal checkup because it focuses on the area between your teeth and gums. This area, the periodontal pocket, is where bacteria and other deposits hide and breed.

To remove unwanted plaque and calculus from the periodontal pocket, the dentist will use a method called scaling and root planing. Using specialized, high-tech equipment, he will rapidly deep-clean the area, sanitizing it afterwards. Then, he will help the gums better adhere to the teeth by making adjustments using his tools. The end result is a clean mouth, and gum disease that is unlikely to progress.

Most patients will require deep cleaning for their gum disease on a regular basis. Tyhee Dental can help you set up a dental care management plan to follow.

Gum disease treatment goes beyond scaling and root planing. In some cases, it may be necessary for the dentist to perform or recommend other procedures, such as the removal of diseased gum, or the reshaping of the surface of the tooth root. These procedures will be discussed with you during your appointment.
