Is A Deep Cleaning Worth It?
Deep cleaning is an extensive version of our regular teeth cleaning. It’s highly effective at treating gum disease. Root planing and scaling allow us to remove tartar buildup deep below the gum line down to the root of your teeth. A deep cleaning helps prevent further buildup that can lead to painful gingivitis and periodontal disease. We’ll do X-rays and pocket depth readings to determine if a deep teeth cleaning is the best treatment for you.
Deep Teeth Cleaning Process
Our deep cleaning process includes:
- Removal of Tartar –We’ll remove tartar, the hardened material from your teeth and gums that you may miss during routine brushing and flossing.
- Removal of Plaque –We remove the sticky film on top of your teeth that grow and live in saliva and food residue, producing toxins.
- Root Planing –We clean and smooth the root of your teeth and pay special attention to your gums. We’ll clean any excess tartar or plaque and minimize the size of the pockets that can trap bacteria.
- Polishing –We polish your teeth for that shiny, fresh feeling.
How To Prevent Gum Disease
Our dental care team in Edmonton believes in continuing education on the best brushing and flossing techniques. We’ll help you prevent gum disease, following a strict cleaning regime. The most important things to remember to prevent gum disease include:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
- Floss after eating.
- Attend routine check-ups for teeth cleanings twice a year.
- Refrain from using tobacco products.
- Eat a balanced diet.
- Avoid sticky, sugary foods and drinks.
