More about this treatment

More in-depth information

Professional mechanical plaque removal (PMPR) is the most common treatment for achieving gum health around implants. It involves professionally cleaning plaque and calculus above and below the gum line into the implant gum pocket. This deep cleaning allows the gum pocket to heal and sometimes close, thereby reducing the implant gum pocket. A shallower gum pocket in turn will help prevent additional gum inflammation and or implant bone loss and so preventing you losing your implant.

This treatment can vary depending on the severity and amount of gum disease around your Implant(s), but generally a course of treatment is either 1 or 2 separate sessions. During your appointment a local anaesthetic injection will be placed in the gum next to the Implant being treated. When the gum and Implant are completely numb, we use the most advanced ultrasonic equipment, being the EMS Airflow® Master with temperature control, to remove plaque and calculus above and below the gum line, into the gum pocket. The treatment is pain free and has a fast recovery.

Frequently asked questions

What will I feel during Professional mechanical plaque removal?

A local anaesthetic injection will be placed in the gum next to the Implants(s) being treated. This will feel like a small sharp scratch or pinch, after which your gum and tooth will be numb. You now will not feel any pain during the treatment.

The numb sensation feels tingly or heavy around the Implant being treated including  lips, chin, cheek or tongue. Advanced ultrasonic and EMS Perioflow® equipment is used with water and gentle vibration to professionally clean and polish your implant removing plaque, calculus (tartar) and staining.

How long does the treatment take?

The time spent removing plaque and calculus will depend on the severity and amount of Implant gum disease, however treatment time is most often between 30 to 60 minutes. But you will not have your mouth open for the full time and there is plenty of opportunity for breaks.

Will I have to take time off work?

We recommend taking the rest of the day off work and most people  would have recovered enough to go back to work the next day.

What could I expect afterwards?

The numb sensation generally lasts 2-4 hours. We do not recommend you chew any food or drink hot drinks while you are numb to prevent you from chewing your lip, cheek or tongue and burning your mouth. You are able to drink water straight after this treatment.

Some minor bleeding after treatment is normal and your saliva can appear pinkish. There can be some slight bruising and or swelling which usually settles after 3-5 days after treatment.

Will I be in pain afterwards?

It is common to feel some soreness after this treatment. We recommend taking a pain killer straight away after having this treatment while you are still numb. We recommend Paracetamol and or Ibuprofen, which is available over the counter. Taking a pain killer will help prevent any immediate discomfort or pain. Some people may need to take pain killers for the next 1-5 days after treatment.

Can I be sedated for this treatment?

Yes. Sedation involves giving you medicine into a vein via a small cannula that makes you feel sleepy and relaxes you both physically and mentally. This medicine is given to you by an Anaesthetist or a Dental Sedationist. You will need someone to take you home afterwards.
