Are you someone who is ready to get your teeth deep cleaned and would like to know more about the process? We can help with that. Did you know that the American Academy of Periodontology recommends dentists offer deep cleanings when x-rays show bone loss or a full-mouth exam reveals one or more gum pockets greater than 4 millimeters deep? With that being said, a regular checkup with your dentist can evaluate whether your teeth need a deep cleaning or not.

What Happens During A Deep Cleaning? 

During a deep cleaning visit, your dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup on the surface of your teeth above and below the gum line. This can help reduce the inflammation in your gums and will continue to improve your gum health. After a deep cleaning, a follow-up visit may be needed to ensure the health of your gums is improving. 

The Advantages Of A Deep Cleaning

If your dentist recommends a deep cleaning, it may be due to the fact that your gums are pulling away from your teeth. When this happens, the gum disease will gradually get worse and cause an even wider space between your gums and teeth. However, deep cleaning can help with this situation. There are, in fact, many advantages to deep cleaning your teeth. This simple process can help prevent gum disease, fight bad breath, protect the root of the tooth, improves the health of your gums, and helps prevents tooth loss.
