Did your dentist in Plantation recently recommend that you have a deep cleaning? If so, you might be a bit confused as to why it is needed and what the difference is when compared to your semi-annual cleaning. This procedure is routinely used to help treat periodontal disease, which is an infection that occurs in the gum tissue.

You may think that following ADA (American Dental Association) guidelines like brushing twice a day and flossing will keep your smile in perfect condition. But the truth is that some patients must deal with a factor that’s simply out of their control. You must consider the role your genetics play in your oral health. For your Plantation dentist, one of the benefits of getting a genetic history for each patient is being aware of what symptoms to keep in mind for potential dental problems. For example, if your family has a history of gum disease, your dentist may ask you to come in for a cleaning and fluoride treatment every four months rather than semiannually to prevent this dental problem altogether.
