Deep Dental Cleaning

When is a deep gum cleaning needed?


The accumulation of tartar in deep dental pockets is one of the most important reasons why your doctor calls for a deep gum cleaning.

What are the steps for deep gum cleaning:


As it is known, deep cleaning in the dental world includes removing plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth and planning the root, as follows:

  • Dental surface cleaning contains the first part which involves removing plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth and from the pocket area between the teeth and gums. The dental hygienist can perform scaling and root planing using ultrasound instruments or manual scaling tools.
  • Cleaning the roots of the teeth contains the other part of the deep cleaning which is root planning, in which the dental hygienist uses a scaling tool to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of the tooth roots. 

Care after deep gum cleaning:

After the scheduled appointment for a deep cleaning, the bacteria in the dental pockets will be removed and in the next few weeks the gums should be healthier. It is important to use the cleaning toothpaste that your doctor recommends. Your dentist may also prescribe an antibacterial mouthwash to reduce bacteria in your mouth. If deep cleaning and 3-month dental visits are not sufficient to treat gum disease, a periodontist should be required for consultation, and consideration should be given to determining future treatment in connection with surgery.
