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.

What is a deep dental cleaning?
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.

What can I expect during a deep dental cleaning procedure?
During a deep dental cleaning, your dentist or dental hygienist will:
- Apply a local anesthetic to numb the area being treated.
- Use specialized instruments, such as an ultrasonic scaler or hand scaler, to gently remove plaque and tartar deposits from the surfaces of your teeth and below the gumline.
- Smooth the roots of your teeth with a curette or other specialized instrument, removing rough spots that can harbor bacteria and contribute to gum inflammation.
- Rinse your mouth with an antimicrobial solution to help flush out any remaining bacteria and debris.
The procedure may be performed in one or multiple appointments, depending on the extent of the gum disease and the patient’s comfort level.
