Do Gums Reattach After Deep Cleaning?

Do Gums Reattach After Deep Cleaning?Gum loss prompted by gum disease is one of the most frustrating dental problems. This condition necessitates treatment and deep cleaning. After deep cleaning, all the bacteria causing the gum loss is removed leaving you with clean and healthy gums. However deep cleaning services involve cleaning under the gum. This can make your gum's grip on the teeth quite loose. The big question then becomes whether healing can occur after deep cleaning.

Gum Growth After Deep Cleaning

Most people expect that their gum will grow back to normal once gum disease has been treated. Although deep cleaning will stop gum from receding, it does not guarantee that the gum will grow back. In most cases, people who suffer from gum disease may be required to undertake further cosmetic options to restore the full beauty of their gums. Even so, deep cleaning does give your teeth a new lease of life.

Healing After Deep Cleaning

Although deep cleaning will not help your gums grow back, it allows them to heal and look healthy again. After deep cleaning, your gums start reattaching to the teeth. This process might take some time, but it gets complete eventually. Usually, the process should be complete within 4 to 6 weeks.

The process of healing is facilitated by the treatment used during cleaning. Basically, deep cleaning refers to the removal of bacteria and other pathogens from under the gum. Once these harmful infections are removed, the gum can get fully reached over time.

Who Should Undergo Deep Cleaning

Deep cleaning services are mostly administered to individuals suffering from gum disease or other dental infections. However, this is a service that should be undertaken by everyone. Deep cleaning helps prevent the occurrence of many dental conditions. Instead of waiting for the condition to explode, get it treated early.
