Can You Avoid A Deep Cleaning (SRP) Treatment?

Can You Avoid A Deep Cleaning (SRP) Treatment?  

Possibly, but you want to do so while working with your dentist.   It will be your dentist who will tell you when and if your gums are healthy enough to avoid the SRP - Scaling and Root Planing or Deep Cleaning Treatment. 

These are often expensive procedures.   Unfortunately, they are usually only temporary.  You'll find that they need to be repeated again in 1 to 3 years depending on how long or even if your gums are able to maintain a healthier state. 

So, how can you prevent this from happening to you?  Of, if you are already facing this situation, how can you convince your dentist that you no longer need this treatment?   

Well, it turns out that there is a relatively objective way to measure gum health.  It is most likely one of the indicators your dentist utilized when determining that you need this more costly and potentially painful treatment.   

Periodontal Pocket Depths - What Are They And What Do They Mean To You AND Your Gums?

The objective indicator that I mentioned above is / are called periodontal pocket depths.  Around every tooth there is a gap between the tooth and the gum that can be tested with a periodontal probe.   This is something that your dentist or hygienist will check / measure for you. 

What you want to hear is that your periodontal pocket depths are 3mm or less.   Generally speaking, most dental professionals will say that your gums are healthy at that point.   Conversely, and again generally speaking, most dental professionals will consider you gums unhealthy (diseased) when those pockets are above 3mm.   

They can get as high as 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or even 11 mm and even deeper.  

So, the key to convincing your dentist that you no longer need the recommended SRP or Deep Cleaning treatment that costs so much is to show her that your periodontal pocket depths have shrunk back to 3 or less.  This is the level that I just mentioned that generally speaking, most dental professionals accept as an indicator of healthy gum tissue.  

Shrink your pockets back to 'normal' levels and your make your dentist go "Wow" and you may be able to escape the previous pronouncement that you needed the extra treatment!  

How Do You Shrink Those Pockets Down? 

There are a variety of methods and none of them are guaranteed to work 100% of the time.   However, I can tell you the one thing that I find works for a high percentage of people.   My perception of 'high percentage" is, admittedly, subjective.   However,  I can tell you what has worked for me and for many other people I have spoken with.  

That one thing that I believe has worked for the most people is the HydroFloss Oral Irrigator

After I shrunk my pockets down using the HydroFloss my dentist was amazed and pronounced that I no longer needed that SRP treatment.   I was very happy.  

I'm not the only one, I have spoken to many people over the years and many people have obtained great results too 

To give yourself the greatest chance of obtaining results, you must use the HydroFloss properly.   This is something I share with customers of Toothy Grins Store.   Once you purchase your HydroFloss at (and only here) , I will be glad to share the 'secrets' to getting the best results.  

The best part is that you will work in coordination with your own dental office to check and verify and be able to tell you if it worked for you too - or not.   You will always remain under the care of your own dentist of choice.  

The goal is to shrink those pockets down to levels they will accept as healthy.  Generally this will be 3mm or less for most professionals.   

I hope I have been able to provide at least a glimmer of hope that you might be able to avoid that SRP (Scaling and Root Planing or Deep Cleaning) treatment that you have been told you need.   

Leave a comment below to tell me how I did...
