Don’t Forget: A Deep Cleaning Is Urgent

When you need a deep cleaning, it’s not something that you can “think about” or put off for as much time as you feel that you need. Instead, it’s a suggestion for a more intensive cleaning than what you receive during a traditional preventive visit and it’s urgent. Why do you need one? Well, because your gum tissue is inflamed and you are at risk of ending up with some serious side effects as a result! Remember that while gingivitis is something we can cure completely, when you ignore periodontal problems, the spectrum goes from minor to severe! Nip the issue in the bud now with our Ankeny, IA team to guide your smile right back to excellent oral health. Need a bit more convincing? We’re happy to help!
