Let us explain you the top 4 dental cleanings that our dentists in Advanced Smiles Dentistry perform. This way next time you visit your favorite dentist in Tijuana, you will know which one are you getting based on the diagnosed.

-Prophylaxis
This dental procedure is for patients that keep their regular check ups every 4-6 months and have an overall good oral health. This routine dental cleaning is to remove plaque above the gumline.

-Periodontal maintenance
Routine dental procedure for those who have a periodontal disease. It can be performed over a specific amount of time depending the seriousness of the periodontal condition to maintain it under control. Also, your dentist can recommend this dental cleaning when you haven’t had one in at least 6 months. This type of dental cleaning goes a little bit deeper by cleaning few millimeters under the gumline.

-Deep Cleaning (scaling and root planning)
A non-surgical invasive dental cleaning that involves a more thorough removal of plaque, tartar, bacteria since it goes from the crown of the tooth to where the root and bone meet under the gum. This specific dental procedure is part of a treatment when the patient has a periodontal disease or periodontitis, commonly known as gum disease.

*Bonus dental procedure: Periodontal Osseous Surgery
When your dentist recommends this procedure is because a home dental cleaning and regular visits to your dentist are not doing the job anymore because the gap between your gum and teeth is deeper than 5mm. That space becomes a pocket that saves a lot of bacteria, resulting in further bone and tissue loss. The osseous surgery goal is to eliminate bacteria and reduce the pocket.
