Deep Teeth Cleaning
The goal of a deep teeth cleaning is to stop the progression of gum disease.
Dental deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, involves special techniques to get rid of plaque, tartar, and bacteria below the gum line down to your tooth roots. This prevents gum disease from advancing and causing tooth loss.

Your dental questions, answered
What happens during a teeth cleaning?
During a cleaning, your dental hygienist will do a full periodontal assessment of your gums, note any recession, periodontal pocketing, and gently remove plaque and tartar from around your gum line, as well as in between your teeth. After your teeth are tartar-free, we’ll polish your teeth with a high-tech electric brush and end by flossing between teeth. We always perform an oral cancer screening at each visit. We may also recommend a prescription fluoride treatment or mouthwash if you are cavity prone or have chronic tooth sensitivity.
Is dental cleaning painful?
If it’s been a while since your last professional cleaning, your gums might bleed a bit during your cleaning. However, our hygienists are very gentle and we’ll take it slow based on your needs and comfort level. If your mouth feels a bit sore after your cleaning, an over-the-counter pain reliever will do the trick.
