Dental question deep cleansing and root planning – for periodontal disease?

The dentist is saying that my boyfriend has periodontal disease. The first step is to come in for a deep cleansing which will be 120.00 per quadrant. She is then saying that the second step is to schedule the surgery. I have read some things on this board that just mention the cleansing not the surgery also. If he has the deep cleansing (which I am assuming right now if the deep scaling and root planning) why would he need to schedule the surgery as well. Wouldnt we have to see if the deep cleansing worked first?

    Your dentist is seeing if the deep cleaning is going to work. If the pockets don’t go down and the gums heal up then they will do the surgery, which is making a little incision and literally cleaning the pockets out.

    Actually your deep cleaning what cheaper than mine, mine ran me 160.00 each time. To be honest it helped tremendously while I was have the cleaning done, but it did not take care of the problem and most of the time the cleaning helps only to a degree and surgery is required in most cases, because they can not get deep enough with the cleaning.

    I’m 34 and I have the bone loss of a 80 year old woman due to the periodontal disease, so your BF needs to be aggressive with the treatment. (just word of advise)

  2. A truly natural treatment for periodontal disease and bad breath is in great demand but next to impossible to find. Everyone is looking for the symptom, cure, and treatment for periodontal disease, gingivitis, bleeding gums and bad breath because no one wants to loose their teeth and many health problem have now been directly linked to gum disease including heart attacks and strokes. It’s a much bigger contributor that originally thought!

    An all-natural oral health product OraMD tackles the problems associated with periodontal disease, pockets and receding gums and is also extremely effective against chronic bad breath product. Because the ingredients are natural enemies of bacteria, it cleans your mouth and stops halitosis ( bad breath ) in it’s tracks.
