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


    In a recent article posted by, researchers found that people with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to have heart disease. 

    Read the full article HERE.

    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

    4. Diabetes

    5. Erectile Dysfunction

    6. Osteoporosis

    7. Low Birth-Weight Babies and Pregnancy 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.

    Gum Therapy/Deep Cleaning F.A.Q.'s

    It depends on how many quadrants and how many teeth in each quadrant have signs of bone loss on the dental x-rays and how many of your teeth have increased measurements of periodontal pocketing.


    We offer a Platinum Plan for our In-House Membership for just these instances. Please inquire if you are a cash patient.


    If you have dental insurance through a Dental PPO, we are contracted at their rates.

    Dr. Rouse does a periodontal evaluation at every new patient appointment where the pockets of your gums get measured and dental x-rays are evaluated for periodontal disease.

    Similar to golf, the lower the number, the better shape most patients are in because there is less of a "pocket" for the bacteria to hide. The measurements typically go from 1-10mm. 

    1-3mm: Typically healthy and little signs of inflammation.

    4mm: Inflammation. The precursor to where we draw the line for unhealthy.

    5-7mm: The ideal time, after reviewing X rays, that a deep cleaning is performed, sometimes in conjunction with other therapy like Arestin (antibiotics placed beneath the gums) or laser therapy to kill the infection under your gums.

    8-10mm: Typically a specialist is called in-house for surgery, if the mobility of the teeth is minimal.

    If too much mobility is present, we typically discuss all of your options, but may be recommending implants.

    If you are unable to clean your gums, the bacteria is causing a low-grade, chronic infection that will not get better.



    In some instances, if only certain parts of your mouth exhibit a couple of teeth that need a deep cleaning, we will perform what is called a "Partial Quadrant" of deep cleaning. 


    Deep Cleanings are measured by each quarter of your mouth. If more than 1-3 teeth in a quadrant need to be deep cleaned, we do the whole quadrant.

    If you have been diagnosed with a deep cleaning in the past, the standard of care is to come back every 3 MONTHS, to keep you healthy and avoid you being at increased risk for a heart attack and stroke.

    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.
