6 Reasons You Need a Deep Dental Cleaning

Are you suffering from halitosis or swollen, red gums? Here are 5 warning signs that it’s time to talk to your holistic dentist about a deep teeth cleaning.


It can be very easy for people to neglect visiting the dentist, especially if it’s for a procedure such as a teeth cleaning. However, while this may seem like an optional treatment, the truth is that a dental cleaning is critical for your oral health. During this treatment, your dentist will be able to:

  • Remove unwanted stains and give you a brighter smile
  • Lower your risk of tooth loss and gum disease
  • Detect early signs of issues such as broken fillings
  • Detect early signs of oral cancer
  • Lower your chances of developing potentially deadly conditions, such as a stroke

If you don’t brush properly or you have a genetic predisposition to gum disease, yet you fail to have regular teeth cleanings, your gums may begin to show signs of gingivitis. If left untreated, this can result in periodontal disease (gum infection) which will eventually lead to tooth loss.

What is a Deep Teeth Cleaning?

A deep dental cleaning is a treatment that cleans between your gums and teeth, down to the roots. Like a regular cleaning, your dentist will clean your teeth and gum line, but during a deep clean, they will continue to remove tartar buildup down below the gumline to the root of the tooth.

Main difference: A deep dental cleaning is a lot more extensive than standard cleanings and is designed to treat gum disease and stop its progression. A deep cleaning aims to:

  • Prevent tooth loss
  • Lower your risk of developing heart disease
  • Enhance your oral and overall health

A deep dental cleaning is often referred to as a ‘root planing and scaling’ and may require several visits to the dentist to complete.

 

6 Signs You Need a Deep Dental Cleaning

Because gum disease doesn’t always come with visible symptoms, it can be difficult to detect. When you visit your dentist for a routine checkup or regular cleaning, he/she will check your gums and determine if a deep cleaning is needed.

However, here are 6 warning signs that you must look out for:

  • Tender and puffy gums
  • Red gums
  • Receding gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Halitosis (persistent bad breath)
  • Unpleasant taste in the mouth

You may also notice that your teeth seem loose, or that there is some pus where your teeth and gums connect. In addition, if your gums hurt when you brush and/or chew, you may have early signs of gum disease and require a deep cleaning.

 

4 Benefits of a Deep Dental Clean

While dentists most often recommend a deep dental cleaning for patients who have signs of gum disease, you don’t need to have this condition to take advantage of the treatment. In fact, some patients opt to have a deep clean at least once a year to protect their oral health.

These cleanings can:

  • Prevent tooth loss
  • Lower your risk of developing gum disease
  • Lower your long term dental costs
  • Improve your cardiovascular health
