Do you feel like your teeth are not as clean as they used to be? Do your gums bleed while brushing or flossing? If so, it's time to consider a deep cleaning. ConfiDental offers deep cleanings in Beverly Hills, typically recommended for gum disease — an infection of the gums that causes inflammation, bleeding, gum recession, and even tooth loss.

About deep cleanings

Deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a specialized dental treatment that removes plaque, tartar, and bacteria below the gum line. This procedure requires a professional dental hygienist to clean your teeth more thoroughly than regular cleaning.

Why do I need a deep cleaning?

Deep cleaning is essential to maintain good oral health. Neglecting your teeth causes plaque and tartar buildup and gum inflammation, which leads to gum disease. Gum disease is a severe condition resulting in tooth loss and other health complications.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. It is caused by a buildup of plaque and tartar below the gum line. Gum disease has two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is reversible, but if it's not treated, it can develop into periodontitis, which is irreversible.

What happens if I don’t get deep cleanings?

If you do not get regular deep cleanings, you are at risk of developing gum disease, which leads to:

  • Tooth loss
  • Bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • An increased risk of other health issues, such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke

What are the benefits of deep cleaning?

The benefits of deep cleaning include:

  • Preventing gum disease
  • Reducing the risk of tooth loss
  • Fresh breath
  • Improving overall health

Can I avoid deep cleanings?

You may be able to avoid deep cleanings in Beverly Hills by having regular dental exams and practicing good oral hygiene. However, some people have a higher risk of developing gum disease and may require professional deep cleaning treatment regardless of preventative care.

How does deep cleaning work?

If you’re suffering from gum disease, your dentist may recommend a deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing. This procedure is for patients who exhibit signs of periodontal disease, such as:

  • Deeper gum pockets (over 3 mm)
  • Inflammation and bleeding gums
  • Accumulation of plaque and tartar below the gum line
  • Loss of bone tissue supporting the teeth 

What are the steps of deep dental cleaning?
