Deep Dental Cleaning
When a routine dental cleaning is not enough
Regular dental cleanings are an essential part of good oral care. Unfortunately, sometimes they are not enough. If, despite regular brushing and flossing, you experience signs and symptoms of periodontitis, or gum disease, chances are you will require a special cleaning procedure. At New Leaf Rohnert Park, our deep cleaning treatments address periodontitis and provide long-term maintenance for patients with gum disease.
Why Choose Us
Here at New Leaf Rohnert Park, we offer a wide range of dental treatments designed to help you keep a healthy smile. While regular brushing and flossing is a great start for good oral hygiene, dental cleanings are essential to remove build-up left behind on the teeth. However, in patients suffering with gum disease, a regular cleaning is not enough to improve your oral health and a deep cleaning is necessary.
Choosing the right dentist for your oral care is important and at our office, we strive to make you feel comfortable and help you understand your dental concerns. We work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that addresses potential gum disease and moves forward to restore good oral health.

What are Deep Dental Cleanings?
Standard dental cleanings work to remove build-up left behind on the surface of your teeth that brushing and flossing can’t remove. When you have gum disease, that surface removal is not enough. If you suffer from gum disease, x-rays will reveal calculus buildup, possible bone loss and pockets between the gums and teeth where bacteria collect and cause chronic and systemic infection. A deep cleaning, including scaling and root planing, are necessary to address these issues and help restore healthy gums and teeth.
Dr. Eddie Kuo understands that this treatment may leave some a little anxious, but our goal is to make sure you feel comfortable during the procedure. A deep cleaning begins with a local anesthetic to help reduce discomfort while we work to remove the buildup on your teeth and perform pocket irrigation to remove the pockets of bacteria. In cases of severe periodontitis, multiple cleanings may be necessary to help restore good oral health.
