What Is The Deep Cleaning Process?
When you first visit our dentist office in Tampa, we will perform a complete examination of your mouth and take any necessary x-rays. This will allow our experienced dentist, Dr. Tran, to get a comprehensive understanding of your oral health and develop a treatment plan based on your unique needs. If there is a large buildup of plaque and bacteria accumulated under your gumline, Dr. Tran may recommend a deep dental cleaning.
To start you deep teeth cleaning, we will gently numb the cleaning area and safely administer any necessary sedation. We will then work to precisely remove plaque and bacteria from the roots of your teeth. We will also smooth out the surface of the roots to prevent further bacteria from collecting.
After your deep teeth cleaning, you may experience soreness, tooth sensitivity or light bleeding when brushing and flossing, but this should dissipate within a few days. Our doctor may recommend that you receive a deep dental cleaning every 3 or 6 months, depending on the severity of your infection and your individualized treatment plan.
