Periodontal Cleaning in Pennington NJ Periodontal Disease and Cleaning

Best Periodontal Cleaning Service in Pennington, NJ. A periodontal disease is a severe form of gum disease in which there is inflammation and infection of the gums and the supporting structures of the tooth.  

This usually starts with the accumulation of plaque, bacteria, and food debris, around the teeth and gum tissue. These deposits initially cause swelling of the gums which can progress to destruction of the supporting bone and the fibers around the teeth. 

This inflammation and infection of the gums are known as gingivitis. The disease at this stage is reversible and can be stopped. However, if left untreated this gum infection progresses to the gum fibers, gum pockets, and the supporting bone. The disease at this stage is called periodontitis. Periodontitis if left untreated can lead to tooth mobility, looseness, and unwanted tooth loss.

Following are some of the symptoms of gingivitis and periodontitis

      • Gums that are swollen and bright red in color 
      • Sensitive teeth 
      • Sensitive and bleeding gums upon brushing and flossing 
      • Bad breath
      • Discomfort or pain upon chewing and biting

The most common contributing factor is improper oral hygiene that leads to plaque and tartar build-up. Plaque and tartar are full of bacteria and bacterial toxins that induce inflammation and infection. Hormonal changes and diabetes is another factor that indirectly exacerbates periodontal disease. Smoking and smokeless tobacco can further contribute to this condition.

Periodontal Cleaning in Pennington NJ Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal Cleaning Treatment protocol for gum diseases varies greatly on the degree of severity. If the gum disease is at the initial stages, cleaning and scaling are recommended. However, if the disease has already progressed then a deep and thorough cleaning is performed in addition to root planing (removal of plaque and tartar from the roots). These procedures thoroughly remove the bacteria, plaque, and tartar build-up above the gum line and below the gum line. 

You can book an appointment with our dental hygienists to professionally remove the plaque and tartar. After the tartar removal, your gums will heal and become healthy.
