We believe that a healthy smile starts with the foundations. If you’ve heard about dental deep cleanings or scaling and root planing (SRP) and wondered what it’s all about, you’re in the right place. Our friendly dentists are here to guide you through the process and show you how a deep cleaning can make a real difference in your gum health.
A dental deep cleaning, or SRP, is not your regular cleaning; it’s specifically designed to combat gum disease and maintain optimal oral health. Unlike a standard cleaning, which focuses on the surfaces of your teeth and gums, periodontal scaling and root planing goes deeper, addressing the pockets and spaces between your teeth and gums where harmful bacteria hide. It’s like giving your gums a refreshing makeover, ensuring they stay healthy and vibrant. By removing this bacteria, your gums can thrive once again to stop recession, decay, or even tooth loss.
Our deep cleaning process is a meticulous and personalized approach to rejuvenating your gum health. For patient comfort, the process is typically broken up into four visits, each focusing on one quadrant of your gums. We’ll begin with a thorough examination to assess the extent of gum disease and determine the best course of action.
Once the area is numbed, the first step is scaling. This involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline. We use advanced tools to ensure a thorough cleaning of all surfaces. The next step is root planning, which will smoothen the tooth roots to prevent bacteria from latching on and promote the healing of the gums. Our team takes extra care to ensure your comfort throughout the process, making it as gentle and stress-free as possible.
Deep cleanings are not just about cleaning; they’re about restoring and revitalizing your gum health. Here’s how they can make a positive impact:
