Once you have seen one of our dentists for a diagnostic assessment for signs of periodontal disease, they will probably recommend you see our dental hygienist, Anette Franck.
She will do a further analysis of aspects of gingivitis and periodontal disease, pocketing, bleeding and bone loss on our computerized charts for disease progression to be monitored.
Deep tooth Cleaning for periodontal (gum disease)
If you are suffering from bleeding, sensitive or swollen gums, bad breath or loose teeth, our dental hygienist, Anette Franck can provide you with useful advice on how to brush and floss your teeth so that you avoid the build-up of plaque that can cause gum disease. Her treatments cover all aspects of gum disease, including gingivitis and periodontitis, so you can reverse the damage done to the gums around your teeth. If you have gingivitis the procedure will be less complex and time consuming. If you have periodontal disease we’ll need to spend more time and care removing bacteria from under the gum.
We all build up tartar and plaque at different rates. For some people their tartar build-up starts to form heavily no matter the frequency they clean and they should be seen every 3 months.
