Deep Cleaning in Simpsonville, SC

Maintaining your gums is just as crucial as caring for your teeth when it comes to keeping your oral health in top shape. It’s essential to prevent and treat gum disease, which occurs due to heavy plaque and tartar accumulation on your teeth. Over time, plaque causes your gums to become inflamed and prone to bleeding, a condition known as gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontal disease, causing your gums to recede from your teeth. Painful pockets of infection can then damage bones, gums, and oral tissue, making it one of the leading causes of tooth loss.

To address gingivitis and avoid severe and painful gum conditions, Emergency Dental Care USA in Simpsonville, SC, offers periodontal scaling and root planing treatments. Periodontal scaling, also called “deep cleaning,” removes built-up plaque from your teeth using traditional methods or advanced laser or ultrasonic devices.
