Scaling and Root Planing – Deep Cleaning

Scaling, root planing, and deep cleaning can protect you and your loved ones from gum disease. By removing plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums, it will maintain your dental and overall health. But to remove plaque and tartar, you need scaling, root planing, and deep cleaning from a dental hygienist.

If you need deep cleaning, your hygienist or dentist may recommend you see them every three months instead of every six months. We recommend you come for a deep cleaning every three months to prevent serious gum disease and tooth loss.

Dental Cleaning vs. Deep Cleaning

There can be some confusion between “deep cleaning teeth” and regular, professional cleaning. Many practices use dental scaling to scale teeth instead of deep teeth cleaning.

The difference between these two services is the level of depth. A “normal” professional teeth cleaning focuses on the teeth and right at the gum line. We remove detritus, polish teeth, and make your mouth feel cleaner than ever! Dental deep cleaning clears gum disease and stops it from getting worse by cleaning the roots of the teeth.

Gum disease grows when harmful bacteria hide and gather in spots in your mouth that are difficult to clean, often below the healthy gums. If not stopped, plaque and tartar can form and accumulate, irritating and receding your gums. It also makes it easier for infection and tooth decay to enter through the soft bristles tissue in your mouth.

A thorough cleaning will remove dangers such as plaque and tartar that can gather around your teeth. It will also ensure that it does not harm the roots of your teeth. Additionally, we will give antibiotics if needed.

How Do I Know I Need a Deep Cleaning?

Dental teeth scaling and root planing are among the first and most effective steps in treating periodontal disease. Unlike gingivitis, infection in your gums puts your dental health at risk. We provide a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Thankfully, our skilled dentists can catch gum disease early and treat it with a deep clean before it causes severe damage. You may be a candidate for a deep cleaning if any of the following conditions apply to you:

  • Your gums are swollen or sensitive
  • Your gums have become discolored
  • Your gums bleed when brushing or flossing your teeth
  • You have plaque or tartar buildup
  • You frequently have bad breath despite good oral hygiene
  • You have noticed a change in your gum line (more of your teeth are showing than usual)
  • Frequent Bone loss and Heart Disease

Catching gum disease early prevents it from worsening and causing infection or tooth loss. If you suspect gum disease, contact us immediately, and we can give you a deep cleaning to improve your dental health.

Do I Need a Deep Clean If I Get Routine Cleanings?

You can still get gum disease even if you take good care of your teeth and regularly visit the dentist. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are important for maintaining good dental health. However, various factors can affect your risk of developing gum disease.

For some, it can be stress or diet, and for others, gum disease can have a major genetic component. For instance, uneven teeth or larger periodontal pockets provide more space for harmful bacteria to hide.

Even if you get regular dental cleanings, you may still need a deep cleaning. Both treatments help protect your health and make your mouth feel fresh and clean.
