GUM DISEASE (PERIODONTAL DISEASE) AND DEEP CLEANING THERAPY

The Research is In: Periodontal Disease Can Double Your Chance of a Heart Attack

Meet Your Doctor

Dr. Rouse and the Open Late Dentistry and Orthodontics Team Work With Our Patients to Improve Their Overall Systemic Health By Removing the Same Strains of Oral Bacteria That Contribute to Heart Disease

The Top Reasons For Periodontal Therapy/Gum Therapy/Deep Cleanings Are SYSTEMIC and ORAL:

SYSTEMIC PROBLEMS:

Gum Disease/Periodontal Disease Strains of Bacteria have been isolated and linked to the following systemic problems for the body including:

1. Increased Chance of Stroke

2. Respiratory Diseases

3. Heart Disease – In a recent article posted by DentistryIQ.com, researchers found that people with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to have heart disease. Read the full article HERE.

4. Diabetes

5. Erectile Dysfunction

6. Osteoporosis

7. Low Birth-Weight Babies and Pregnancy Problems

ORAL PROBLEMS:

1. Tooth Mobility, or “Wiggly Teeth”, that lead to loss of teeth and extraction/dentures

2. Root Sensitivity From Bone Loss and Exposed Roots of Teeth

3. Infection Spreading to Other Healthy Teeth When Not Having Therapy Performed

4. Having teeth firmly rooted in the bone enough that they can withstand chewing forces while eating for years to come.

5. Preventing further costs down the road like Gum Surgery and implant supported dentures.

Periodontal disease goes unnoticed often and is rarely discovered until it has progressed.

This is due to the fact that 50% of people do not go to see a dentist every 6 months. 

According to the American Dental Association, 33% of Americans that are estimated to have it.

Periodontal Maintanence

Regular Cleanings are preventative and completed with your regular dental checkups.

These dental cleanings focus on removing plaque

Tartar that is not removed from prophylaxis can build and form under the gum line, which then leads to periodontal disease and can result in tooth or bone loss.

Periodontal Maintenance follows a “scaling and root planing.”  

Periodontal maintenance – Typically to do a scaling and root planing, at least a couple of teeth have calculus on the dental x-rays in each quadrant.

Plaque doubles every month. If you come 6 months instead of 3 and have calculus deposits on the x-rays,  another deep cleaning may be necessary.

That is why Dr. Rouse recommends every 3 months for life, or until all periodontal pocketing is gone for an extended period of time, but this rarely happens.

Pockets are spaces between the teeth and gums where plaque and tartar form.
