What is a deep cleaning?

A deep cleaning, also known as scaling or root planing, is a procedure meant to remove plaque and tartar buildup and improve your gum health. This treatment is similar to how our hygienists typically clean your teeth, but also focuses on cleaning below your gum line.

When is a deep cleaning necessary?

Regular dental cleanings, along with thorough brushing and flossing at home, can help keep plaque under control. However, if plaque and calculus advances beyond and below the gum line, gum disease and periodontitis can develop. Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages gums and can destroy the jawbone. Often, a deep cleaning is the first step in treating gum disease and periodontitis. A deep cleaning remove plaque and calculus below your gum line and improves your gum health. 

What to expect from your deep cleaning

1. A deep cleaning requires more than one visit to complete. We’ll focus on one side of the mouth at a time.

2. Sit back and relax in our plush patient chairs — ask for headphones and a blanket and get cozy!

3. We’ll gently administer a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort while we clean under your gums.

4. Your deep cleaning will take about 45 minutes. We’ll make sure you feel comfortable the whole time!

5. We can add a laser bacterial reduction treatment to help your gums heal better and faster after the treatment.

My husband Gary recently had a new crown made at TLC Dental using a state of the art machine called Cerec. The entire procedure was completed in just a few hours start to finish and the crown is absolutely beautiful! One visit that was it! I can’t tell you how grateful he was to miss only a few hours of work to have this procedure done in 1 visit!  As my husband always tells me they are the best dentist we have ever had. So lucky to call them ours! Thank you TLC!
