Deep Cleaning

Deep cleaning treatment removes the buildup of plaque and tartar in order to clean the teeth and gums all the way down to the roots.

When a patient visits a dentist for a cleaning, one of the first things that happens is that the hygienist measures the distance between a tooth and the gum tissue surrounding it. This is to determine whether or not pocketing has occurred. A deep cleaning will likely be recommended if the space between the tooth being measured and the gums is greater than or equal to 5 millimeters.

A deep cleaning will also be recommended if a patient has gone a considerable amount of time without a routine cleaning or if he or she has a moderate form of gum disease. If your dentist recommends a deep cleaning, it is essential that the cleaning is carried out as quickly as possible to prevent complications like tooth loss.
