Prevent Gum Disease with Deep Cleaning and Scaling and Root Planing from Wappingers Falls Dental Arts
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common problem that affects many adults. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious dental problems, such as bone loss and tooth loss. Fortunately, at Wappingers Falls Dental Arts, we offer deep cleaning and scaling and root planing to stop gum disease in its tracks and help you maintain excellent oral health.
Our experienced dental hygienists use special instruments to remove hardened plaque below the gumline, where regular brushing and flossing cannot reach. This process, known as deep cleaning or scaling and root planing, helps to prevent bacteria and infection from spreading throughout your gums and body.
If you are at risk of gum disease due to factors such as inconsistent oral hygiene habits, long lapses in dental visits, or a family history, our team can help. We will make sure you are comfortable throughout your visit, and we can use topical numbing gel and local anesthetic to ensure your deep cleaning is as pain-free as possible.
After your deep cleaning, we may recommend supportive antibiotic therapy or dental lasers to further prevent gum disease from returning. Routine visits every three to four months and proper at-home oral care can also help you maintain healthy gums and prevent gum disease from coming back.
If you are experiencing warning signs of gum disease, such as bad breath, sore or bleeding gums, or loose teeth, do not wait until it’s too late. Schedule a deep cleaning appointment at Wappingers Falls Dental Arts today. Our team is here to help you achieve a healthy, confident smile.
