Deep Gum Cleaning

Signs You Need Deep Gum Cleaning

When a routine dental cleaning is being done, tartar and build up is scraped off of your teeth, just at or above the gum line. However, in some instances, you may need deep gum cleaning. When this procedure is being done, tartar and build-up is scraped off of the enamel just below the gum line. This procedure is done with local anesthesia so you are comfortable, but it is needed for those who are showing signs of gum disease. If your gums are red or inflamed, if they bleed when you brush them or if your dentist is telling you that you may be experiencing gum disease at any stage, deep gum cleaning may be recommended to remove the build-up and bacteria from your teeth below the gums.
