The first step in the treatment process is professional dental cleaning for gum disease at our Blackburn clinic.
The first professional cleaning is known as scaling and root planing and involves removing all plaque, tartar, and bacterial products. In scaling, tartar and bacteria are removed from the tooth surfaces and underneath the gum line. During root planing, bacterial products produced by inflammation are removed and smoothed, preventing further tartar and bacterial buildup. Instruments, lasers, or ultrasonic devices may be used during the procedure.
The next step is any dental restoration that may need to be carried out. Crowns, dental implants and bridges can be used to replace any lost or damaged teeth and restore your smile.
When the patient actively takes part in dental care, professional gum treatment is extremely effective. By brushing, flossing, and cleaning between your teeth on a regular basis, you can remove bacterial plaque and allow your mouth to rest and recover after meals. Dental care for gum health is a passion for our dentists and we can provide a personalised oral hygiene program and comprehensive gum care routine for you.
Prevention is always much better than treatment when it comes to gum disease, so booking routine dental inspections every six months is vital. We also offer Invisalign treatment, paediatric dental care, teeth whitening and regular dental check ups . Contact Focus Dental at Blackburn to book your next appointment.
