Deep Cleanings

In some cases, particularly with gum disease, you’ll need a cleaning that goes beyond your regular check-up.

Your regular dentist cleanings in Fairfax are an essential aspect of maintaining your oral health. Routine cleanings for healthy mouths every 6 months focus on preventative maintenance. Once gum disease and poor oral hygiene progress past when a preventative cleaning is appropriate, deep cleanings may be required (Often called “SRP” Scaling and Root Planing and Periodontal Maintenance Cleanings)

While periodontal gum disease cannot be cured, with deep SRP cleanings in combination with periodontal maintenance cleanings, our Oakton Family Dentistry team helps stop the progression of gum disease.

Patient Education

What is gingivitis?

Knowledge is a powerful resource, and it can give you the opportunity to fight back and make an impactful decision for your smile going forward.

Gingivitis is a common gum disease that causes inflammation and irritation. It’s the earliest form of gum disease. You may notice some gum recession and bleeding when you floss. Gingivitis, if treated early, is reversible with a thorough cleaning and regular home care.

Preventive Care

Gum disease is a fairly common condition that affects the gum tissue surrounding the teeth, the supporting ligaments, and even the bone structure in the jaw. As gum disease progresses, it becomes increasingly destructive.

When you visit our team at Oakton Family Dentistry, we check your smile for the presence of gum disease at every visit and alert you if the condition is present. While gum disease can be treated at home with proper brushing and flossing in its first stage, once it advances, it becomes incurable.

Our team prioritizes your health and works hard to ensure your entire family has a healthy smile for life.
