Expert Deep Cleanings & Periodontal Maintenance
Gum disease can be persistent, requiring careful home care and regular cleanings after treatment. We provide expert periodontal maintenance, delivered by Dr. Greenberg.
Dr. Greenberg will set the schedule of maintenance adequate to keep gum disease in check.
Deep Cleanings for mild periodontitis
Dr. Greenberg also uses deep cleanings as a first line of attack on mild gum disease, i.e. gingivitis, the mildest form, and mild periodontitis, the stage of gum disease where the bacteria starts to affect the bone and connective tissues around the tooth.
He uses an ultrasonic scaler to remove heavy calculus deposits and a prophy jet that uses a spray of air and water to disinfect bacteria and polish the teeth.
We use a special digital charting system to graphically track the condition of your teeth and gums and the progress of your treatment. Dr. Greenberg can show you the areas you need to focus on with home oral care as well as showing you your treatment progress.
Home oral hygiene tools
We supply you with oral care tools specific to your circumstances. These can include specialized toothbrushes, plaque removers and implements to stimulate the gum.
Dr. Greenberg teaches you how to best care for your gums and teeth. You can also watch special patient education videos.
