Deep cleaning FAQ

Posted on 8/22/2022 by Office of Dr. James A. Krippaehne
Deep cleaning FAQDental deep cleaning is an intensive process that involves a thorough cleaning of your teeth and roots. The cleaning process reaches areas in your oral cavity that the normal brushing cannot reach and cleans them.

Our experts will pull your gums back to expose the roots of your teeth, which are then properly and carefully cleaned to remove tartar and plaque. This dental procedure protects against gum disease and tooth decay. This article discusses some of the frequently asked questions concerning the process.

Are deep teeth cleaning painful?

You might be concerned about the amount of pain you might be subjected to during the deep teeth cleaning process. The good news is that our practice uses anesthesia to numb the sectors the dentists will be working on. As a result, you will not experience any pain. However, since the procedure involves pulling back your gums, you will experience tenderness and soreness of the gums after the anesthesia wears off.

Is deep cleaning necessary if the patient has gum disease?

Deep cleaning is vital if you are suffering from gum disease. The dental procedure can reverse gingivitis at its early stages and manage the condition in advanced cases. Our dentists also recommend a deep cleaning to patients who lack the commitment to maintaining proper dental hygiene.

Does deep cleaning loosen teeth?

No, deep cleaning will not make your teeth lose. You might feel that your teeth have become loose due to removing tartar and plaque buildup, which were holding the teeth in place, giving your teeth false stability. Over time, the teeth will readjust and become more stable.

Is deep dental cleaning safe?

Yes, deep dental cleaning is a safe procedure with a high success rate. However, professionals should do the procedure to avoid damaging the roots. Check us out for professional deep teeth cleaning services.
