Chula Vista Deep Teeth Cleaning

One of the best ways to prevent periodontal disease is with biannual dental cleanings. However, if a patient neglects to follow this recommendation, a standard cleaning (i.e., a traditional cleaning) to remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth may be unable to fully address the issues a patient is experiencing: In a case such as this, a Deep Cleaning is required. There are several terms used to refer to the traditional Deep Cleaning procedure, including Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing (SRP), Periodontal Therapy, Gum Scaling and Root Planing or Gum Therapy.

Standard Dental Cleaning vs Deep Dental Cleaning

The Deep Cleaning process is similar to the process performed during a traditional biannual cleaning except, rather than just focusing on the sides, front and back surfaces of the teeth that are located above the gumline, the Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing procedure includes removing tartar and debris from between the teeth and the gingival tissue as well as from the pockets that have formed between the gums and roots of the teeth.

Who Should Consider Having a Deep Dental Cleaning?
Individuals who notice they have signs indicating that their gingival tissue may be infected should schedule an appointment with Dr. Sadat for an exam. During this exam, Dr. Sadat evaluates the patient’s teeth to determine if a Deep Cleaning is warranted.

Signs of infection can include:
  • Red, inflamed gingival tissue.
  • Gum tenderness.
  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing.
  • Teeth appearing longer. This can occur as the gums pull away from the necks of the teeth.

  • The dental exam performed during the initial consultation may also include measuring of the pocket depths, which is usually a painless process, and X-rays.

    Individuals who are interested in having a cosmetic dental procedure performed may need to have a Standard cleaning or a Deep Cleaning before moving forward with their aesthetic desires.
