A simple clean and scale may not be enough for some patients.
When plaque and calculus get trapped under your gums for a long period of time, the bone and gums surrounding your teeth can get damaged. This can cause periodontal or gum disease.
A periodontal gum clean involves removing the calculus and plaque caught under your gums, and although it requires numbing (using local anaesthesic) and takes slighter longer, it is a really important process in halting the disease.
