An Alternative To Deep Cleaning

A  Deep Cleaning Treatment is Also Known as A SRP or Scaling and Root Planing Treatment

Of course, I must start off by telling you that you should always be under the care of a dentist.  You also have the right to visit another dentist if you are not happy with the one that you have.  

You also should not avoid recommended treatments without hearing the opinion of another dentist.   You should always go to your dentist for advice, diagnosis and treatment.  

Having said that,  I am going to tell you how I avoided a deep cleaning treatment which is also called a SRP or Scaling and Root Planing Treatment.  

My Alternative

I tried many different things.  Nothing seemed to work.  Every time I went to the dentist they told me that my gums were NOT better and that I needed to have this 'deep cleaning' treatment done.  

They even told me that if I didn't get it done and I lost my teeth that it wouldn't be their fault.  At one point I was told that I needed to sign a waiver.   I told them I would sign one but they didn't actually have anything for me to sign.   That was interesting... 

So, eventually I came across this device.   I thought I would give it a try.   I used it a lot for several months and went back to the very same dentist who had told me that nothing else would help me but the 'deep cleaning' treatment.  

The Results?  

My dentist was visibly surprised and so was the hygienist.  After looking in my mouth for a long time, the dentist finally said:  "Whatever you are doing, keep doing it.   You don't need that treatment anymore".
