Deep Cleanings

When bone loss or periodontitis occurs, deep cleanings are necessary to remove the infection, prevent further damage and create a healthy environment for healing to occur.To stop gingivitis from progressing, your dentist or hygienist may recommend a deep cleaning.  Gingivitis is reversible, but, if left untreated, the inflammation/infection will travel to the base of the tooth, causing periodontal pockets and bone loss.
