Signs and Symptoms
Steps in Deep Cleaning Treatment
Dental Examination: The first step is to undergo before a Deep Cleaning Treatment is a comprehensive dental examination. Your dentist will assess your oral health, including the condition of your teeth, gums, and supporting structures. They will identify any signs of gum disease, such as inflammation, bleeding, or deep periodontal pockets.
Teeth Scaling: The next step is teeth scaling, which involves the removal of plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth and below the teeth gum-line. Special dental instruments are used to carefully scrape away the buildup of bacteria and deposits that contribute to gum disease. Teeth Scaling is typically performed using ultrasonic scalers.
Root Planing: After Teeth Scaling, root planing is done to smooth the rough surfaces of the tooth roots. This process helps eliminate bacteria and allows the gums to reattach to the roots, promoting healing and reducing the depth of periodontal pockets. Root planing also makes it more difficult for plaque and tartar to accumulate in the future.
Antibacterial Rinse: Our dentist will prescribe or recommend an antibacterial mouthwash or rinse to help kill bacteria and promote healing after the deep cleaning treatment, providing an additional level of protection against gum disease.
Follow Up Care: It is important to follow any instructions provided by our dentists for post-treatment care. This may include proper brushing and flossing techniques, using prescribed mouthwash, and attending regular dental check-ups for ongoing monitoring of your oral health.
Maintenance & Prevention: Deep cleaning treatment is an essential part of treating gum disease, but ongoing maintenance and prevention are crucial for long-term oral health.
