Periodontal Cleanings



Dentist in Port Orange

The goal of periodontal cleaning is to restore diseased tissues back to health. Periodontal gum disease can spread from the gums to the bone that supports the teeth, and can cause tooth loss in the most severe cases.

There are several effective therapies to combat this, ranging from scalings (deep cleanings) that remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from beneath the gum line using hand scalers and/or ultrasonic instruments, to surgical repair of lost gum and bone tissue.
