If plaque or gum disease is present, we may recommend a periodontal cleaning. A periodontal cleaning is done when there is severe gum loss or gum disease and the pockets of the gums have deepened to 3mm or more. The purpose of this kind of cleaning is to try to save the teeth from gum disease. It helps to relieve swelling and inflammation caused by gum disease, allowing the mouth to heal and feel better.
Over time, with good hygiene and regular cleanings, the gum disease can be reversed. To make an appointment with our Dyker Heights dentist, call today. Call today or make your appointment online.
