Dental Deep Cleaning
Dental Deep Cleaning | Joplin MO
Do you need a deep cleaning of your teeth?
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.
During a deep cleaning, your dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup on the surface of your teeth above and below the gum line. After a deep cleaning, a follow-up visit may be needed to ensure the health of your gums is improving.
This is one of the most homey and welcoming dental offices I have ever been to. Thank you for your positive approach, organizational prowess, and kindness. It makes a big difference.
