Gum Disease Treatment
Sometimes a dental cleaning is not enough to get a person’s teeth and gums healthy. Unhealthy bacteria can live below the gum tissues and colonize tooth root surfaces. Deep seated bacteria and their by-products need to be flushed from the root and gums surfaces. This usually requires two visits with the hygienist and a numbing medicine to keep things comfortable. Additionally, these people also are advised to see the hygienist more frequently for routine maintenance cleanings. The trouble with gum disease is that it can return if the gums and teeth aren’t maintained well.
