    Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment/ Deep Cleaning in Pearland, TX

    Importance Of Deep Cleaning

    When we consume food, a thin film of plaque forms on our teeth that contains food particles, saliva, and oral microbes. You can easily remove plaque with routine brushing, but if it remains longer, it hardens into tartar, which is more difficult to remove.

    The plaque near the gumline allows bacteria to enter the gums, which can trigger swelling and inflammation. This is an early stage of gum disease called gingivitis. At this stage, prompt non-surgical periodontal treatment or deep cleaning at our Pearland, TX, practice can help prevent the progression of severe gum disease. Lack of timely treatment can lead to serious complications, and you may even end up losing your natural teeth.

    Questions About Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment/ Deep Cleaning?

    What Happens During Deep Dental Cleaning In Pearland, TX?

    The procedure of non-surgical periodontal treatment at our Pearland, TX, practice involves the following steps:

    • Oral Exam: Before we begin the treatment, we will check your mouth to evaluate the health of your gums and teeth. We may also take dental X-rays to examine the extent of gum damage or bone loss.
    • Scaling: For this step, we use an ultrasonic device that gently scrapes off plaque and tartar deposits from the tooth surfaces and under the gum line. It also eliminates harmful oral bacteria that cause inflammation of the gums.
    • Root Planing: To clean deeply below the gumline, we will glide the scaler tip over the tooth roots. It removes tough deposits and smoothens the surface, promoting gum reattachment.

    Treatment Aftercare at Dental Specialists of Pearland

    Once the non-surgical periodontal treatment is complete, our Pearland, TX, team will provide an oral care regime. We suggest brushing and flossing your teeth regularly to avoid plaque accumulation. Our periodontist may suggest an antibacterial mouthwash to minimize harmful oral bacteria.

    If you experience slight sensitivity in your teeth after professional teeth cleaning, it is normal. Don’t worry; it is temporary and fades away within 2 to 3 days. It is also helpful to reduce the intake of colored food and drinks and avoid smoking to keep your teeth stain-free.
