Deep Teeth Cleaning: Treating Gum Disease

If you have gum disease, our expert hygienists have you covered!

Bright red, puffy, and bleeding gums are a warning sign of gum disease. Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums caused by plaque and tartar collecting under the gums. It can start developing quickly with as little as three days of missed flossing. As gingivitis turns into periodontitis, the gums pull away from the teeth and recede, creating deep pockets that quickly catch food, plaque, and debris. Normal dental cleanings aren’t enough to clear these gum pockets. A deep cleaning is often needed to remove the buildup and keep gum disease in control. Deep cleanings are more comprehensive than a teeth cleaning, reaching below the gum line to clear the roots of plaque and tartar. This is done in two steps: scaling and root planing. During scaling, a dental hygienist will scrape

the teeth’s roots free from all of the hardened buildup. Planing will then smooth down the roots, allowing the gums to better heal and reattach themselves to the teeth. To thoroughly clean your entire smile, the whole process takes either four 45-minute visits or two 90-minute appointments. Without regular scaling and root planing, periodontitis can grow out of control and put your entire smile at risk. Gum disease gradually attacks the gums, jawbone, and connective tissues anchoring your teeth in place. Left untreated, teeth can become loose and eventually fall out, even as the infection continues to spread. Get your gum health back on track with a deep cleaning!

  • How long does a dental exam take?

    A comprehensive exam can take about the same amount of time as a dental cleaning visit. Cleanings typically take between 30 minutes, your exam will be 45 minutes on average. If you’d like to book an appointment, you can reach our dental office at (714) 278-4975.

  • Does dental cleaning loosen teeth?

    No. If you have less-than-stellar dental hygiene habits and it’s been a while since you last saw a dentist, you may notice your teeth feel looser after a dental cleaning. This isn’t caused by the cleaning itself but by Periodontal disease. As the gums recede, deep pockets form between them and your teeth, easily trapping food and dental plaque. By removing this buildup below the gums, your dental hygienist only reveals the space and looseness that was already there.

  • How often should you get a deep cleaning?

    If your gums are in relatively good health, you don’t need a deep cleaning. However, patients with periodontitis may require regular scaling and root planing to contain and manage their gum infection. Depending on their gum disease’s severity, a dental hygienist may need to perform a deep cleaning as often as every 3 or 4 months. If deep cleanings are needed more frequently, we may recommend other treatments like gum flap surgery instead.

  • How often should you get a dental exam?

    You should see a dentist for an exam at least twice a year. Dental problems can develop quickly if you’re not careful. Early cavity detection means you may only need a simple dental filling rather than a tooth crown or root canal. If you have a history of recurring or severe dental health problems, our dentists may recommend exams three or four times a year.

  • How does poor oral health affect health?

    Your oral health is more important than you might realize. Dental health is connected to your overall health and well-being. With periodontitis, in particular, oral bacteria and infection can enter the bloodstream to spread to the rest of the body. Poor oral health is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and pneumonia.

  • Is it painful to get a deep cleaning at the dentist?

    Periodontitis causes the gums to become irritated, inflamed, and tender to the touch. Since deep cleanings go deeper than a normal teeth cleaning, our hygienists will apply a numbing agent to your gums beforehand, ensuring the process is comfortable and painless for you.
