Is your dentist concerned about the condition of your teeth and gum disease? If so, you may be ready for a deep cleaning. This type of procedure is used to aggressively remove plaque and tartar that is present below the gum line. Let us take a quick look at what you can expect.
A Deeper Look at Deep Cleanings
Before the treatment begins, you will be provided with local anaesthesia. This helps to ensure no pain. Then, the dentist will use a tool known as a scaler to scrape away any plaque and tartar that are found beneath the gums. There may also be times when root planing is needed, as this can provide a flat surface that the gums will subsequently reattach to.
“After the procedure, you may need to take antibiotics to help clear up any infection that may have been present.”
