- TEETH AND GUM CLEANING :
Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease
Teeth cleaning (also known as prophylaxis, literally a preventive treatment of a disease) is a procedure for the removal of tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach in routine toothbrushing. It is recommended that the teeth are professionally cleaned every six months
2. SPECIALISED TREATMENT FOR GUM DISEASE
The bacteria cause inflammation of the gums that is called “gingivitis.” In gingivitis, the gums become red, swollen and can bleed easily. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
The main goal of treatment is to control the infection. The number and types of treatment will vary, depending on the extent of the gum disease.
Flap Surgery: Surgery might be necessary if inflammation and deep pockets remain following treatment with deep cleaning and medications. This common surgery involves lifting back the gums and removing the tartar.
Bone and Tissue Grafts: In addition to flap surgery, procedures to help regenerate any bone or gum tissue lost to periodontitis can also be done. Bone grafting, in which natural or synthetic bone is placed in the area of bone loss, can help promote bone growth.
