What To Expect From a DEEP Cleaning at the Dentist

Let's talk about deep cleanings - including the procedure itself, post-op instructions, recovery, and everything else you want to know!

Deep cleanings are a type of therapeutic procedure used to halt periodontal disease and prevent it from progressing. They’re designed to reach tartar and plaque buildup deep below gum tissues inside of infected “periodontal pockets.” Unlike preventative dental cleanings, these scaling and root planing treatments are focused on areas of infection using special instrumentation or technology.

Most deep cleanings consist of cleaning one quadrant (1/4) of your mouth at a time, scheduling 1-2 quadrants per appointment. It’s common to have half of your mouth cleaned during one deep cleaning procedure and the other half cleaned at a separate visit 1-2 weeks later.
