Deep Cleaning

PERIODONTAL DISEASE:

A chronic disease affecting the teeth and its supporting structures–There are varying levels of disease: Gingivitis; Slight, Moderate, and Severe Periodontitis

Cause

Bacteria underneath the gumline that is not removed for a period of time Plaque hardens to calculus that sticks to the roots of our teeth

Dection

    • X-rays
    • Complete perio charting (measuring the gums)
    • Exam by a dentist

Outcome with no Treatment

    • Bone loss around teeth
    • Mobility and Tooth loss (because of the lack of bone around teeth)
    • Bleeding gums
    • Bad breath
    • Negative impact on systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes

Oral Systemic Connection:

The blood that supports our teeth is the same blood that flows through our heart and is pumped to all of the other areas of our body. Periodontal disease involves harmful bacteria that enters our bloodstream and is spread to every other area. This bacteria has a significant impact on diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease; it can inhibit improvement for these systemic diseases. Periodontal treatment is an effective method of removing this bacteria from the bloodstream.
