Pocket irrigation

Pocket Irrigation - Newmarket dentists by Woo Dental

As part of deep dental cleaning, dentists and periodontists perform pocket irrigation. Dentists use pocket irrigation to clean the pockets that form between the teeth and gums due to inflammation. Periodontal disease attacks the tissues and bone surrounding the teeth and causes them to form pockets around the teeth. As the pockets deepen, they provide more space for bacteria to grow and spread.

The dentist in Newmarket performs pocket irrigation as part of a dental cleaning, which helps in preventing gum diseases. Here are the reasons how pocket irrigation can save your teeth and gums :

Prevents bad breath

When you brush your teeth, there are areas that you cannot reach. The food particles or debris left cause bad breath. When your dentist performs pocket irrigation, the food particles are flushed out, making your teeth clean.

Saves your gumline

During pocket irrigation, dentists use pocket irrigators that have rounded tips to remove any tissue damage. This procedure protects your gums from bacteria and toxins.

Removes harmful bacteria

Pocket irrigation allows deep cleaning in between the spaces of the teeth. It can keep the gum pockets cleaner and makes your gums tissue healthy since they are free from harmful bacteria.

How does it work?

Using a handheld power tool, your dentist in Newmarket injects water into the dental pocket to create irrigation. With the water stream,  he removes the tartar and plaque. As soon as he thoroughly cleaned the teeth, he will apply a prescription antibacterial gel to prevent future infection. 

Maintaining your teeth with pocket irrigation is possible with your Newmarket dentist. It’s a simple, non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require any drilling or anesthesia. With pocket irrigation, you can get rid of periodontal disease and bad breath for good!
