Teeth cleaning is a dental hygiene service, aiming to remove plaque, calculus and stains deposited on your teeth. Commonly, patients ask for dental cleaning, in order to remove stains and the obvious teeth discoloration. Professionally speaking, teeth cleaning can be done, commonly, by a Dental Hygienist or General dentist but, at best, it could be done by Periodontist “Gum Specialist”, such as Dr.Miski, who has got 3 additional years of education, in addition to general dentistry, to do this mission more deeply than others. Normally, general dentist refers complex cases to periodontist and dental hygienist works under supervision of periodontist.
Dental Cleaning is divided into three categories:
-Scaling or Debridement
-Deep Scaling & Root Planing
“Prophylaxis” is done as often as patients desire, but at least twice a year. we know adding a third or even a fourth will make you love your healthy smile even more. Higher frequency of dental cleaning also reduces the amount of time needed at each appointment. Why not just, Check in Check up Check out.
“Prophylaxis” is a kind of teeth cleaning and it is indicated when the patient has healthy gums and just minimal plaque and tartar above the gum line.
Teeth Scaling in the Presence of Inflammation
This is often a one-time procedure. Most noteworthy, the patient has no permanent gum disease, yet presents with slight to moderate buildup of plaque and tartar both above and below the gum line, Prognosis is good! As a result, patient just requires a bit more of oral home care. Returning 2-3 times a year for regular cleanings should prevent this from happening again.
Deep Cleaning- Scaling and Root Planing
Teeth scaling and root planing is provided for patients that present with Periodontal (Gum) Disease.
It is typically done in many appointments. Periodontist, such as Dr. Miski, is a specialist, who is specialized and trained to do this kind of treatment, and he will diagnose and check patients on things like “pocket depth”, “gum recession” bone loss” and “attachment loss”: These are the signs of Periodontal disease. While never 100% curable, this disease is an infection and there are a wide range of of treatments that can be tailored, and planned for each case. However, understand, that once you have it, you have it and you need quick treatment and periodontal maintenance.
As stated above, “perio” maintenance appointments are 3-5 times per year for those patients that have had Scaling and Root planing in accordance with some level of Periodontal disease. This periodontal maintenance is very critical for the success of the treatment and it should be re-evaluated regularly.
Exam and Procedure
First, Dr.Miski examines the status of your teeth and gum and determines the appropriate treatment.
It could be a simple Prophy, teeth scaling or teeth scaling and root planing, depending on how much healthy your teeth and gum are and on the clinical judgment of the periodontist as well.
BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
Dr. Miski is a fantastic and extremely knowledgeable man, who understands that patients are not only concerned with a quality treatment, but also a qualitative understanding of the procedures and their reasons. Dr. Miski was always patient with his explanations and it is clear that it is very important to him that the patient understands. Aside from this, I was always comfortable with any dental procedures Dr. Miski conducted and trusted his judgement. I would highly recommend anyone to Dr. Miski purely due to the clarity he provides with every treatment.
I’ve been availing of Dr. Miski service for over 3years now and every experience is a joy. Dr. Miski is someone who really makes you feel he cares more about my teeth, more so than I do myself. He takes his time to explain all of your available options and no matter how many questions I ask of him, I never feel I’m burdening him. As someone with extreme sensitivity, never once have I ever felt any discomfort with any injection or procedure and can wholeheartedly say, my teeth have improved immensely since I started using the services of Dr. Miski. Unreservedly, I feel if the dentistry industry had more professionals like Dr. Miski, we all could benefit greatly.
The most beautiful and complete work seeing ever. Thank you Doctor.
