Dental Deep Cleaning
Regular dental cleanings focus on cleaning above the gum line. Deep cleaning treatments go under the gum line to remove infection. An oral exam will determine if there is infection caused by gum disease. If the infection is ignored, patients are at risk for tooth loss, stroke, and heart attacks.
What to expect at my appointment
A deep cleaning appointment takes slightly longer than normal cleanings, but with the help of numbing gel, can be completely painless. We recommend immediate attention and follow-up appointments every 3 months to ensure the bacteria does not reproduce.
