FAQ

What is a deep dental cleaning?

Standard dental cleanings work to remove build-up left behind on the surface of your teeth that brushing and flossing canā€™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.

How is a deep dental cleaning different from a regular dental cleaning?

A regular dental cleaning, or prophylaxis, focuses on removing plaque and tartar from the visible surfaces of the teeth and along the gumline. A deep dental cleaning goes a step further by targeting the deep pockets between the teeth and gums where periodontal disease occurs. This procedure not only removes plaque and tartar but also smooths the tooth roots to help promote gum reattachment and improve gum health.

When is a deep dental cleaning necessary?

A deep dental cleaning is necessary for patients with periodontal disease, as it helps to remove the harmful bacteria and tartar buildup that contribute to gum inflammation and bone loss. By removing these deposits and smoothing the tooth roots, a deep dental cleaning can help prevent the progression of gum disease and reduce the risk of tooth loss and other complications.

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.

Are there any side effects or discomfort associated with deep dental cleanings?

Deep dental cleanings should not be painful, as a local anesthetic is used to numb the area being treated. However, you may experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity during and after the procedure, particularly if you have deep gum pockets or sensitive teeth. Some patients may also experience minor gum swelling, bleeding, or tenderness following the procedure. These side effects are usually temporary and should resolve within a few days. If you’re concerned about discomfort, be sure to discuss this with your dental professional, who can take additional measures to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
