What it’s like getting a deep cleaning?

The procedure for our Waxhaw dental deep cleaning is straightforward.

  1. We begin with a thorough examination of your gums to determine the extent of the scaling needed.
  2. Using specialized dental tools, we gently remove plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gum line.
  3. Then, we’ll smoothly plane the root surfaces to prevent further bacterial growth.

The entire process might require more than one visit, depending on your oral health. Post-treatment, we’ll provide you with detailed care instructions to ensure a quick and comfortable recovery.

FAQs about deep cleanings

Why is scaling and root planing necessary?

It’s essential for treating periodontal disease, as it cleans below the gum line where regular brushing and flossing can’t reach.

Can scaling and root planing improve bad breath?

Yes, by removing the bacteria that cause gum disease and bad breath, this treatment can significantly improve oral freshness.

Is the procedure covered by insurance?

Most dental insurances cover deep cleanings as a necessary treatment for gum disease. We can help you understand your benefits.

How does this treatment prevent tooth loss?

Removing plaque and tartar buildup helps preserve the supporting structures of the teeth, preventing their loosening and loss.

What’s the recovery time after a deep cleaning?

Most patients return to normal activities immediately, though you may experience mild sensitivity or soreness for a couple of days.
