What is a Dental Deep Cleaning?
A dental deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a procedure performed by a dentist or hygienist to treat gum disease. It involves the removal of plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and gum line, along with smoothing the root surfaces of the teeth to help remove bacterial toxins. This comprehensive cleaning helps to prevent gum disease from advancing and helps to improve gum health. Dental deep cleanings go beyond regular cleaning, as they target areas that are difficult for regular brushing and flossing to reach, and are an effective solution for individuals experiencing early-stage gum disease.
Do I need a Dental Deep Cleaning?
A dental deep cleaning is recommended when you have gum disease. If left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis, which is a more serious form of gum disease that can cause tooth loss. A dental deep cleaning is recommended when gum disease is present to remove plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gum line. Signs that you may need a dental deep cleaning include: red, swollen, or tender gums, gums that bleed when brushing or flossing, persistent bad breath, receding gums, and a change in the way your teeth fit together when biting. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to schedule a dental exam to determine if a deep cleaning is necessary.
