  • I brush and floss. Why are cleanings important?

A thorough cleaning ensures that all nooks and crannies are perfectly clean. As well as you brush or floss, No matter how well you brush and floss, there’s no way to get every tooth as clean as a thorough cleaning will.

  • What’s a deep cleaning and who needs it?

Your teeth are attached to bone, which is covered by your gums. The area from the top of your gums to the top of your bone is a “pocket” around each tooth; if the pocket is just 4 to 5 millimeters or larger, it’s impossible to clean with a toothbrush. Bacteria gets stuck in the pocket and causes damage, which manifests itself in bleeding gums, bone loss around teeth, and eventual tooth loss.

If you have deep pockets around your teeth, you may require a deep cleaning. Deep cleaning consists of scaling and root planing to get those pockets clean and healthy. You may also need to have your gums cleaned more frequently than an average person to protect against tooth and gum disease.
