What is deep teeth cleaning?
The importance of keeping your teeth clean can't be denied. Also, the benefits of regular visits to a good dentist are undeniable. Dental visits are a nice way to ensure your mouth is in great shape. However, a lot of people are confused when they come across the term "deep teeth cleaning". If your dentist has suggested deep teeth cleaning to you, then here are some things that will help you know that what it is and how it is different and what you can expect from your appointment.
What is deep teeth cleaning?
The term deep teeth cleaning is self explanatory, the dentist actually cleans the surfaces that are deeper inside the gum line. This is essential when plaque builds up on areas where your brush can't reach or flossing is not possible. The buildup can cause the gum tissue to get detached from the surface of the tooth. When left untreated, your gums can move away, making your teeth to appear longer. This also exposes more sensitive parts of your teeth to harmful trauma and bacteria.
Does this process hurt?
Depending on the strength of the plaque buildup and how deep the cleaning should be, the dentist may use anesthesia to anesthetize the areas that needs treatment. If there is only section of your mouth that needs treatments, it can be done in a single visit, but if your complete mouth requires a deep teeth cleaning, your dentist may break up the treatment into two or more sections and schedule two or more appointments. After the cleaning, you can expect little more sensitivity, as well as some bruising and uneasiness. For post procedure discomfort your dentist may recommend you some pain killers. So, if you experience any pain, contact your dentist immediately.
How deep teeth cleaning is different from standard cleaning?
As compared to standard teeth cleaning, deep teeth cleaning is little more invasive. There are two process involved in this type of cleaning: planing and scaling. The process of removing plaque from the surface of the teeth is termed as scaling. Planing on the other hand is the process of smoothing out the enamel after the removal of the plaque, giving a smooth surface for your gums to reattach.
