Bucktown Dental Deep Cleaning

Diagnosing Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is diagnosed by our dentist or hygienist through a series of tests. First, we will check the depth of the gum pockets between your teeth and gums. Next, we will check for inflammation, bleeding, loose teeth, and bone loss. Based on our findings, we will determine the stage of your periodontal disease and recommend your treatment.

Gingivitis

The first stage of periodontal disease, characterized by inflamed, tender, bleeding gums, and plaque build-up

Periodontitis

The first stage of periodontal disease, characterized by inflamed, tender, bleeding gums, and plaque build-up

Advanced Periodontitis

The first stage of periodontal disease, characterized by inflamed, tender, bleeding gums, and plaque build-up

Deep Cleaning

Periodontal disease is very treatable, but cannot be fully cured. After the completion of your periodontitis treatment, you will be scheduled for regular ongoing maintenance care. These visits will involve a thorough professional cleaning and monitoring of your oral health to ensure the disease does not recur and progress further.

We recommend scheduling your periodontal maintenance visits and your general dentistry visits on an alternating schedule. This ensures you are receiving the proper care and treatments for your oral health needs in a timely, consistent manner.
