What Is A Deep Cleaning?

Posted on 10/31/2023 by Weo Admin
a woman receiving a dental cleaning Scholes Periodontics & Implants in Chandler, AZDental cleanings and deep cleanings are two different things, and you need to understand the difference between the two to get the best care for your teeth possible. Here is some information you need to know about deep cleanings and why they are so important.

Deep Cleaning Explained

People with periodontal disease, also called gum disease, need to have a different type of cleaning to preserve their teeth and gums. While deep cleaning is not needed with Stage One of gum disease, it is vital for people who suffer from periodontitis or Stages Two and Three of the disease.

Unlike a traditional cleaning, which cleans your teeth and gums at the gumline, a deep cleaning, also called scaling, cleans your teeth and gums below the gumline. This deep cleaning removes plaque and tartar from teeth and gums. While you are able to get plaque off your teeth and gums yourself, you can't remove tartar.

A deep cleaning is one of the best preventative measures against periodontal disease. That's because when your teeth and gums are deep cleaned, you eliminate a good deal of the infection. If you are lucky, you can halt the progress of gum disease.

Should I Be Worried About Deep Cleaning?

Many people worry about having their teeth deep cleaned. However, if you have a conversation with the dentist about your fears ahead of time, there are some things they can do to ease your anxiety. Dental patients often request medication to help them through procedures such as deep cleaning. The dentist may offer you a mild sedative to relax you. Other patients choose IV sedation, which offers deeper relaxation. If you are worried, you need to discuss your fears with your dental practitioner. That way, you'll be able to relax, and allow the dentist to help you with better dental health.
