If you have developed periodontal pockets as a result of gum disease, then ask Dr. Donald Roman about pocket irrigation. Our team at Roman Dental Arts helps to clear away harmful substances from these periodontal pockets in order to help your mouth heal. Please call Dr. Roman if you need to benefit from pocket irrigation in Hackensack, New Jersey.
One of the symptoms of periodontal disease is the gum tissue pulling away from teeth. This gingival recession results in what is called periodontal pockets, which are the gaps between the gums and the teeth. Periodontal pockets can worsen your oral health because they are hard to clean and collect food, plaque, tartar, and other substances. In order to clear out your periodontal pockets, we offer pocket irrigation.
Pocket irrigation, also called oral irrigation, can be completed in a dental office or at home. The irrigator is a tool that sends a high pressure stream of water to your teeth. When used in conjunction with brushing and flossing, pocket irrigation can produce a healthier, cleaner mouth. Pocket irrigation is especially important because it can flush out substances trapped in the periodontal pockets. It can even deliver medication there.
