Just like there are different types of car detailing, there are different levels of cleanings. Depending on the health of your bone, you will fall into one of these categories:
Regular cleaning: A prophy removes normal levels of plaque from the top of the teeth surfaces. This will prevent gum bleeding & inflammation (gingivitis)
Gingival cleaning: When there is excessive bleeding and swollen gums present, you will need a gingival cleaning to reset your microbiome.
Deep Cleaning: Nearly 60% of adult Americans have periodontal disease which necessitates a deeper, more intensive therapy. This is a destructive & degenerative bone condition which is the #1 reason why we lose our teeth as we age.
