Teeth Cleaning in Coney Island
If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy, it is important that you have periodic dental exams and also regular dental cleanings. There may also be times when you will need to have a periodontal cleaning to help your gums return to good health. At A Plus Dental, PC, you can have either a regular teeth cleaning in Coney Island
, or receive periodontal care from our expert dentist, Dr. Leonard Zhukovsky, in the form of a periodontal cleaning.
When a patient has a dental cleaning, it can be either done preventatively or to help gums recover from gingivitis. When gums have gingivitis, they have become inflamed due to irritation by plaque or tartar gathering along the gum line. Regular dental cleanings are performed to remove all tartar and plaque from the surface of the teeth, as well as from between the teeth and from just below the gum line. Regular dental cleanings will not only help your gums to remain healthy, but it will also help to ensure that you do not get dental cavities due to plaque remaining on your teeth. If a dental cleaning is being performed preventatively, our dentist will generally recommend that a patient has a regular teeth cleaning in Coney Island
every six months. If our dentist finds that you have gum disease, and deep pockets have formed between the teeth and gums, you will need to have a periodontal cleaning. A periodontal cleaning is often referred to as a deep cleaning for the gums, and is called a scaling and root planing treatment. This procedure is performed when deep pockets are present, and the patient has mild-to-moderate gum disease. This procedure will remove all materials from the deep pockets, and will help the deep pockets to become smaller, and eventually heal. When periodontal treatments are not successful, gum surgery may be needed. If a patient’s gums remain healthy, they will never need to have a periodontal cleaning.
