Tooth cleaning & Gum
First visit This is a diagnostic visit where time is spent checking each tooth and the gum surrounding it.
Comprehensive consult We note the areas harboring plaque and the ones that are difficult to clean.
Scaling or teeth cleaning The junction between teeth and gum is a nidus for food entrapment, which if not cleaned within 12 hours, results in hardened deposits that cannot be brushed away. This can only be treated by ultrasonic cleaning, commonly known as scaling. It helps in maintaining gum health and is required once every year. If you’re suffering from bad breath or bleeding gums, this is your cue. However, if the deposits are rooted deeper under the gum, your dentist might recommend you a gum surgery.
Gum SurgeryIf you have gums that are swollen, red, or bleeding; deep pockets that form between your gums and teeth; pain when chewing and suffering from a bad breath, we suggest you visit your dentist for a potential gum infection. This procedure can:
  • Remove bacteria from beneath your gums
  • Make it easier to clean your teeth
  • Reshape the bones that support your teeth
  • Prevent future gum damage
