What Is a Deep Cleaning?

A deep cleaning, also called scaling and root planing, is sometimes necessary to treat gingivitis or moderate to severe gum disease. If you have been away from the dentist for a while, bacteria may have spread beyond your gum line. This creates a deep space between your teeth and gums. These “pockets” are a sign of gum disease, and a deep cleaning is necessary to eliminate them and stop the spread of infection.

  • Why Do I Need a Deep Cleaning?
    • To maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.
    • To prevent decay, infection, gum disease, and tooth loss.
    • To remove stubborn plaque and tartar that your toothbrush cannot reach.
    • To catch problems early, before they become more expensive.
    • To ensure whole body health and well-being.
  • Does It Hurt?

    No. We’ll use a local anesthetic to numb your gums and make sure you remain comfortable. You may experience soreness after the procedure, but it will dissipate within hours.

Frequently Asked Questions about Deep Cleanings

  • Do I really need a deep cleaning?

    Your hygienist will only recommend scaling and root planing if it’s necessary for your oral health. Their diagnosis is based on the buildup of plaque and bacteria, the condition of your gums, and any history of gum disease.

    To schedule a deep cleaning in Las Vegas, please contact our team at Summer Dental & Orthodontics.

  • How often should I get a deep cleaning?
    Your hygienist may recommend periodontal maintenance following your dental cleaning. If you keep these appointments and maintain good oral health habits at home, you may eventually be able to resume dental cleanings at 6-month intervals. We do understand that our patients lead busy lives, so we’ll never judge you if you’re behind on your cleaning.
  • How can I prepare for a deep cleaning?
    Brush your teeth before your appointment to remove food and plaque.
