North Charleston General Dentistry
Cleanings and Gum Treatments
Ashley Dental Associates begins each checkup with measurements of gum tissue to evaluate any possible periodontal disease. Measurements between 1-3 mm are considered to be healthy, while measurements exceeding that may be an indication of periodontal disease. If periodontal disease is diagnosed, we can discuss possible treatment plans.
Routine cleanings are essential to maintaining good oral hygiene. Ashley Dental Associates recommends that you have a professional cleaning at least every six months. However, some patients are advised to go more often, depending on their oral hygiene habits and/or their past history of periodontal disease.
