More about this treatment

Periodontal Deep Cleaning in Burgess Hill information

We offer Periodontal Deep Cleaning in Burgess Hill providing expert treatments for achieving optimal gum health.

Professional mechanical plaque removal (PMPR) is the most common treatment for achieving gum health and periodontal stability. There have been many names for this treatment over time for example root planing, non-surgical periodontal treatment, sub gingival scaling or debridement. It involves professionally cleaning plaque and calculus above and below the gumline into the gum pocket. Deep cleaning allows the gum pocket to heal and often close, thereby reducing the pocket. A shallower gum pocket in turn will help prevent additional bone loss and so avoid tooth loss.

This treatment can vary depending on the severity and amount of gum disease, but generally a course of treatment is divided into 2 to 4 separate sessions. During your appointment a local anaesthetic injection will be placed in the gum next to the teeth being treated. When the gum and teeth 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 gumline and into the gum pocket. The treatment is pain free and has a fast recovery.

Periodontal Deep Cleaning FAQs

What will I feel during Professional Mechanical Plaque Removal?

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

The numb sensation feels tingly or heavy around the teeth being treated including  lips, chin, cheek or tongue. Advanced ultrasonic equipment is used with water and gentle vibration to professionally clean and polish your teeth 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 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. Most people would have recovered enough to go back to work the next day.

What can 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 pink. 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, while you are still numb. We recommend Paracetamol and/or Ibuprofen, which is available over the counter. Taking pain killers will help prevent any immediate discomfort or pain. Every individual will experience a different level of soreness and so you 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.
