Treatment of gum disease without surgery: Deep teeth cleaning at Winnipeg, MB specialist’s office
As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. Hoda Hosseini is specially trained in treatment of gum disease. Dr. Hosseini has extensive experience in preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions that affect the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. She treats periodontal disease (gum disease) non-surgically with deep teeth cleaning at ClearCare Periodontal & Implant Centre in Winnipeg, MB.
Anti-infective therapy or deep cleaning
This treatment, known as scaling and root planing, is like a “deep clean” of diseased gum and the diseased root structure. During these therapies, our hygienists use specialized instruments to remove hardened bacterial plaque from very deep pockets that otherwise would cause tooth loss. This plaque is constantly forming on the teeth. Once plaque hardens to form tartar, it cannot be removed with regular brushing and flossing.
Dental plaque is filled with bacteria biofilm that irritates the gums. Without treatment, it causes the supportive gum tissue to pull away from the teeth and to form deep pockets. These pockets can harbor all sorts of destructive substances including the harmful bacteria that continue to destroy oral tissues.
When in the hands of a qualified periodontist like Dr. Hosseini, professional tools are used to thoroughly clean underneath the gums and deep into these pockets.
Anti-infective treatment or deep cleaning is not a surgical procedure. There is no cutting involved and is generally well-tolerated with local freezing. Treatment may be appropriate for patients with active disease. Early in the disease process, damage to the gums can be reversed. For optimal results, Dr. Hosseini provides personalized guidance on oral hygiene techniques and oral care products that support gingival healing. Patients with more advanced disease may benefit from surgical periodontal treatment. The goal is to restore the health of your gums and prevent irreversible bone loss, and ultimately the loss of natural teeth.
