Gum Cleaning Deep gum cleaning differs from regular teeth cleaning.

What is
Deep Gum Cleaning?

Deep Gum Cleaning differs from regular teeth cleaning. It is also known as scaling and root planning. The presence of calculus under the gum line creates a safe place for bacteria to collect. This bacteria develops and leads to infection in your gum. Eventually if this infection continues, it will result in the loss of one or more teeth.

How is it different from regular cleaning?

During a regular teeth cleaning, your dentist removes plaque and tartar from your teeth above and under the gum line.

But when we do deep gum cleaning, we follow teeth cleaning treatment which contains the same elimination of tartar and plaque at and below the gum line and also cleans the root surface.

What are the symptoms?

Many people with gum disease are not aware of the problem. Often the disease is painless.

Common signs are:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen, bleed easily, or pull away from the tooth
  • Pus around the teeth and gums

The follow-up care:

The dentist will prescribe an antibiotic for the infection and an over-the-counter pain reliever to ease any discomfort. Your dental clinic may recommend follow-up appointments to verify healing, confirm the removal of bacteria and monitor your oral health.
