Deep cleanings and periodontal therapy can help you maintain your oral health in the best possible condition. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in America and that is why our dentists in Allen are so passionate about helping heal the gums and bone of our dental patients. With proper oral care you can keep your teeth well into your 90s!
Scaling and root planing is also known as an SRP. This involves cleaning not only the portion of the tooth you can visibly see but also the root surface that is below the gum line. If don't properly we are able to stop the progression of periodontal disease and get your oral health back into a great condition.
Treating gum disease can be easy and painless. Whether you need a routine dental cleaning or an SRP we are able to treat all of your dental needs at Thrive Dental and Orthodontics. If you are diagnosed for a deep cleaning it is imperative that we get this done as soon as possible to not allow the disease to progress. If peridontal disease progresses this may lead to tooth loss which is painful and expensive.
After a deep cleaning we may prescribe antibiotics to kill the remaining bad bacteria. This is an adjunct therapy to deep cleaning that will allow your gums and bone to heal properly. This inexpensive treatment can greatly increase the effectiveness of deep cleanings.
