Deep Teeth Cleaning in Delray Beach

A Deep Teeth Cleaning is a special teeth cleaning treatment for patients who suffer from periodontal or gum disease. Periodontal (gum) disease is characterized by an excessive amount of plaque and calculus (tartar) around the teeth, causing deterioration to the surrounding tissues and bones. It can be identified by :

  • red, swollen or tender gums
  • bleeding gums after brushing or flossing (healthy gums should NEVER bleed)
  • persistent bad breath
  • pain while chewing
  • loose teeth and your pulled away gums
  • pus or bacteria in the gum pockets (area between your tooth and the surrounding gum tissue)

If periodontal disease is left untreated, it will eventually begin to destroy the gums and bone. Gum disease has been linked to other long-term health health complications, including stroke, diabetes and heart disease.

Deep Teeth Cleaning Procedure


Scaling is the removal of the dental tartar from the tooth surface. At this stage, a dentist or hygienist will clean your gums all the way down to the bottom of the pocket. This will ensure that the pockets where bacteria accumulates, remain clean.

Root planning is the process of smoothing the root surfaces after the scaling process. This process of smoothing your roots, enables your gums to reattach healthily to the tooth structure and recover.

As a non-surgical procedure, scaling and planning is usually performed without any anesthesia. However, advanced stages of gum disease may make it necessary to numb the area for complete comfort.
