Deep Teeth Cleaning

Deep Dental Cleaning Carson, CA

A healthy and strong smile is an important part of maintaining your overall health. When dangerous plaque and bacteria accumulate underneath the gum line, a deep cleaning may be necessary to restore the health of your smile.

At Care Dental Center, our skilled dental hygienists are experienced in removing this harmful plaque and tartar when a regular dental cleaning isn't enough. Our professional deep dental cleanings are gently performed in the comfort of our modern dentist office.

What is a Deep Dental Cleaning?

A deep dental cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, involves the removal of plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line of your teeth, extending to the tooth roots.

A deep cleaning is diagnosed by your dentist, and is necessary when plaque and bacteria has crept below the gum line, and cannot be removed with a normal dental cleaning.

When is a Deep Dental Cleaning Necessary?

Deep cleanings are typically for patients suffering from gum disease, which comes in two stages. The mild form of gum disease is called gingivitis and advanced gum disease is called periodontitis.

If gum disease is caught in its earlier stages, a deep dental cleaning can reverse the damage done. For patients with periodontitis, deep dental cleanings are one of the most effective treatments and can cause gum disease remission.

What is the Difference between a Routine Cleaning and Deep Dental Cleaning?

A routine cleaning is a non-invasive procedure focused on removing plaque and tartar on the tooth surface and above the gum line – it is preventative dental maintenance necessary for all patients.

A deep cleaning is more involved, making use of special techniques, and is not required for all patients. The sole goal of dental cleaning is to stop the advancement of gum disease.

Do I Need a Deep Dental Cleaning?

Gum disease is stealthy. Its symptoms are hard to detect because they are often painless and invisible. If you spot any of these signs, a deep dental cleaning may be helpful:

  • Consistent bad breath or bad metallic taste in mouth
  • Permanent teeth that have loosened or separated
  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Swollen, tender or red gums
  • Receding gum line

What are the Benefits of a Deep Dental Cleaning?

Besides leaving your smile feeling clean and refreshed, a deep dental cleaning provides patients with a few key advantages:

  • Reduces your risk of gum disease by eliminating dangerous bacteria and plaque below the gum line
  • Aids in preventing tooth loss by fighting periodontal disease (a significant contributor to tooth loss) and gum recession
  • Improves tooth sensitivity over time due to receding gums, bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching) or poor oral hygiene
  • Reverses halitosis, or bad breath, by removing bacteria and plaque buildup

What Is the Process of a Deep Dental Cleaning?

During your first appointment in our office, we'll start with an initial exam, necessary x-rays, and consultation with our experienced Dr. Omid Barkhordar. Dr. Barkhordar will then determine which type of dental cleaning is right for you.

Once we've diagnosed you as needing a deep dental cleaning, we'll begin your treatment by administering any elected sedation. Our experienced dental hygienist will then carefully and gently remove any plaque and tartar buildup found underneath your gum line. A deep dental cleaning can be performed in one or more visits to our modern dentist office, depending on your comfort level, and the amount of plaque present.

What Can You Expect After a Deep Dental Cleaning?

It is normal to experience sensitivity, gum swelling and even minor bleeding for a few days after a deep cleaning. Try these tips for relief:

  • Eat soft foods like yogurt and mashed potatoes
  • Avoid very hot or cold drinks and foods
  • Rinse with a warm saltwater solution or take over-the-counter pain medications to reduce inflammation

Brushing with a soft bristle brush and flossing regularly will reduce gum swelling and promote healing.

How Much Does a Deep Dental Cleaning Cost?

A deep cleaning is, on average, $150 - $250 per quadrant, which means the average price for a full mouth deep cleaning is $600 - $1,000. Though not preventative dentistry, deep cleanings are covered by some insurance companies.

It is our goal to provide high-quality dental services that are affordable for all patients. At Care Dental Center, we will go over pricing and payment options with our patients.
