Because deep cleanings are performed deeper into the gum to target deposits under the gum line, they are typically more painful. However, we provide local anesthesia to the target areas before we start so that you are numb without experiencing any of the pain.

You may also be recommended for antibacterial solutions that will be applied directly under the gum line to prevent the spread of bacteria and keep your numbers down. Antibacterial mouthwashes will also be recommended into your daily hygiene care at home.

Those with deeper pockets and high numbers are recommended to follow up every 3 months in order to see how well treatment is bringing your numbers down, otherwise other options will be explored.

Deep cleaning often results in success provided you are doing your part at home. It is very difficult to bring numbers down through deep cleaning alone – you must brush, floss, and use any other solutions daily as directed by your dentist.
