Deep Teeth Cleaning

During a deep dental cleaning, your provider offers scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas at or below your gumline. Your dentist might use state-of-the-art lasers to control bacterial growth and prevent future buildup.


Using antibiotics is another way to reduce bacterial growth associated with gum disease. Your Smile Dental specialist might recommend you try oral antibiotics, mouth rinses, or gels.


In severe cases of periodontal disease, your specialist may suggest you undergo surgery to restore gum or bone tissue.Don’t let gum disease grow into a severe oral health problem when simple periodontal dentistry solutions are at your fingertips.
