A deep cleaning is needed when tarter buildup is in excess throughout the mouth. Often times the bone levels are lower and gum tissues are swollen and bleed more easily. This is due to the abundance of bacteria present that is concentrated in the tarter. Deep cleanings remove not only the tarter (seem in the before photo), but also the bacteria that prevents your mouth to be healthy. Usually because of the amount of tarter buildup the dental hygienist need to numb the area for the patients comfort.
During a regular dental cleaning plaque and tarter are removed from the teeth. Having this slight buildup that occurs every 6 months removed from the teeth, help keep the gums and the surrounding bone healthy and strong. If left for too long, this plaque and tarter will form under the gum tissue and a deeper cleaning will be needed.
