Dental cleaning

Daily dental hygiene is fundamental, but not infallible.

Deep dental cleaning or periodontal disinfection is a professional cosmetic dental treatment aimed at eliminating the bacteria found inside the gums that cause periodontitis, the oral disease that destroys the bone and gums surrounding the teeth. Deep dental cleaning is important because if it is not done, the bacteria accumulated inside the gums release toxins that destroy the bone that supports the teeth. This destruction is usually painless and imperceptible to the patient. The frequency of these deep dental cleanings depends on some factors such as, among others, the patient’s brushing efficiency and the patient’s predisposition to periodontitis.
Most patients require this treatment every 6-12 months, however those with severe periodontitis may require a frequency of 3-4 months. Deep dental cleaning should be performed by specialized hygienists who have the appropriate skills and knowledge to ensure a painless treatment and achieve proper efficacy in removing bacteria that have colonized the inside of the gums. Cleaning begins with an assessment of brushing efficiency, reviewing the brushing technique with the patient.
Next, we perform a clinical and radiographic examination of the gums and teeth to assess their condition. We try to detect caries and measure the depth of the periodontal pockets in the gums to rule out a periodontitis problem and then proceed with the deep cleaning.
