Types of Gum Therapy We Offer

Gum therapy services depend on the individual patient's requirements, but this can involve a broad range of non-invasive procedures, as well as more comprehensive treatments. The most common gum therapy option offered at Lüminus Dental Clinic is subgingival scaling and root planing.

Deep Cleaning

Deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a more extensive cleaning procedure than a regular dental cleaning. It is a non-surgical procedure used to remove plaque and calculus (tartar) above and beneath the gum line. It involves using both manual and ultrasonic instruments to remove the hardened material and smooth out roughness on the roots of the teeth which act as a niche for bacteria which cause chronic inflammation. This may also be paired with localized topical antimicrobial medications to stem any advancing gum disease.
A deep dental cleaning is typically done in several appointments.  A comprehensive charting of the pocketing or spaces between the tooth and the gum tissues is measured at 6 different sites for each tooth.  X-rays, Bone levels, gum recessions, and mobility of the teeth, among other data is recorded prior to any treatment.  Local anesthesia may be used to ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure. After the treatment, the dentist will recommend follow-up appointments to monitor the gum health and provide additional treatment if necessary.
Overall, deep dental cleaning is an important preventive measure for maintaining good oral health and preventing the progression of gum disease.

Benefits of Gum Therapy

Aside from being important to your overall health and well-being, gum therapy has several benefits. Here are some examples:

Fights Infection

Professional gum therapy can help prevent gum infections by addressing the underlying causes of gum disease such as bacterial infection and inflammation. Gum therapy can minimize bone loss, receding gums, and decrease the chances of tooth loss.

Reduces risk of systemic diseases

Gum disease has been linked to other systemic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Treating gum disease through gum therapy may help reduce the risk of these conditions.

Cleaner Teeth

While brushing helps to remove bacteria that form plague and tartar above the gum line, gum treatments can reach the bacteria beneath the gum line, helping reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease.

Fresher Breath

Plaque and tartar buildup can result in bad breath or halitosis. Aside from regular dental check-ups, visiting your dentist for deep cleaning can help remove hard buildup of tarter and accumulation of bacteria which causes bad breath.

Common Gum Diseases

It's important to get ahead of advancing gum disease before developing issues such as chronic oral pain and difficulty chewing. Below are some of the early signs of a periodontal disease:
