A Step Beyond Routine Cleanings

While regular dental cleanings are essential, dental deep cleanings, also known as scaling and root planing (SRP), offer a more intensive solution. This procedure targets plaque and tartar buildup below the gumline, addressing early stages of gum disease to promote better overall health. Periodontal scaling and root planing is typically completed in four visits. That way, we can effectively remove pesky bacteria from your entire mouth for a revitalized smile. Our deep cleaning dentists are dedicated to preventing and treating gum-related issues with the most gentle and comprehensive solutions available.

When Do I Need a Deep Dental Cleaning?

Although a dental deep cleaning sounds like something everybody might need every once in a while, it’s only necessary for those experiencing symptoms of gum disease. You may require a visit with a deep cleaning dentist if you experience:

  • Bleeding gums: Gums that bleed during brushing or flossing can be an early sign of gum disease.
  • Persistent bad breath: Chronic bad breath may be indicative of bacteria below the gumline.
  • Gum recession: If your gums are pulling away from your teeth, exposing the roots, a deep cleaning may be necessary.
  • Visible tartar buildup: If you notice hardened deposits on your teeth, especially near the gumline, a deep cleaning can help.

Our Dental Deep Cleaning Process

A dental deep cleaning is completed in a short series of visits to ensure effectiveness and patient comfort. Our process begins with a careful assessment of your oral health, including digital X-rays to identify areas of concern. The next step is scaling, involving a thorough removal of plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth and below the gumline. Root planing is next, smoothing out the tooth roots to eliminate rough spots. This step promotes gum reattachment and prevents future buildup. A specialized antimicrobial rinse is then provided to eliminate bacteria and promote a healthy oral environment.

We’ll be sure to provide personalized instructions on follow-up care to maintain optimal oral hygiene between visits. With expert periodontal scaling and root planing, you can prevent the progression of gum disease and smile in confidence once more.
