Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation

A Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation is a way to assess your periodontal health by examining:

  • Your teeth
  • Your plaque
  • Your gums
  • Your bite
  • Your bone structure
  • Your risk factors

When Dr. Scheines performs this evaluation, she will look at these six areas to determine the state of your periodontal health.

Why do I need a Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation?

Recent research has indicated that the prevalence of periodontal disease in the U.S. may be significantly higher than originally estimated. This means that all adults should thoroughly assess the state of their periodontal health to receive accurate information about the health of their mouths.

By assessing your oral health on an annual basis, you and your dental professional will know how healthy your mouth is, and will be better able to notice any conditions, such as periodontal disease, that may need additional treatment.

Research has also shown, and experts agree, that there is an association between periodontal disease and other chronic inflammatory conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory diseases. Therefore, it is very important to treat the inflammation that causes periodontal disease as soon as possible to ensure that your entire body stays healthy.

Routine Dental Cleanings

Routine dental cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, is a preventive dental procedure that involves removing plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth. It is typically performed by a dental hygienist and is an essential part of maintaining good oral health.

During a routine dental cleaning appointment, the dental hygienist will use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth, especially along the gumline and between the teeth. They will also polish your teeth to remove any remaining plaque and stains, leaving your teeth clean and smooth.

Periodontal Maintenance

A periodontal maintenance appointment is a follow-up visit with a dental hygienist or periodontist after the completion of active periodontal treatment, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) or periodontal surgery. These appointments are important for maintaining the health of your gums and preventing the progression of periodontal disease.

Deep Cleanings

Periodontal deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a non-surgical procedure used to treat gum disease, specifically periodontitis. During this procedure, the dentist or dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar from the teeth and roots, and then smooths the rough spots on the roots to remove bacteria and help the gums reattach to the teeth. Periodontal deep cleaning is often done in multiple visits, with each visit focusing on a specific section of the mouth. It is an important treatment for gum disease and can help prevent further damage to the gums and bone supporting the teeth.
