What Is A Deep Cleaning?

If you’ve developed signs of periodontal (gum) disease, a regular cleaning may not be adequate. The first stage of periodontal disease, gingivitis, is usually corrected with a deep cleaning, also called scaling and root planing (SRP). This is a nonsurgical procedure done by our dental professionals to help eliminate gum disease by removing built-up tartar and plaque below the gumline. With specific instruments, a deep cleaning treatment cleans out the gum pockets, then smooths the surface of your teeth to avoid further buildup. If you’re worried about your gums, find out more about our deep cleaning treatment at Kissable Dental in Dallas, TX.

What to Expect During A Deep Cleaning

SRP is a deep cleaning that may be performed in our office using local anesthesia on the areas of your mouth being addressed. We might also suggest sedation methods if you are feeling anxious about the deep cleaning treatment. Our dental experts at Kissable Dental will utilize a scaling tool to clean the tartar and plaque below the gumline. We will subsequently plane or smooth the exterior of the enamel to decrease the number of regions where tartar and plaque may get caught to avoid future problems.
