This patient has periodontal disease and requires a deep cleaning. Periodontal disease is a condition that occurs when significant levels of plaque and calculus cause your gums to swell and the bone around your teeth to recede. This can be prevented with good oral hygiene and a lack of frequently drinking sugar filled drinks. A deep cleaning is needed to remove the plaque and calculus causing the bone loss.
