How to Maintain Healthy Teeth : What Is a Tooth Deep Cleaning?


Have you ever wondered what is a deep cleaning,
and why your doctor or your hygienist is prescribing that to you? Well, my name is Michelle, and
I’m a dental assistant with Solutionz, and I’m here to explain to you what a deep cleaning
is. Basically, a deep cleaning; it’s pretty easy. It is, it’s a, it’s somewhat of a regular
cleaning. You’re still getting that regular cleaning with when when you’re having a deep
cleaning, but a deep cleaning actually goes deeper below the gum. It stops to where your,
where the scaler, where the hygienist’s scalers cannot scale out any more, and basically,
it’s basically what it’s called. It’s called; it’s a deeper type cleaning. Now, normal cleanings
are only deal with the crown surface of your tooth, so normal cleanings will only address
from your gum line on, so they’re kind of just scaling and polishing all the calculus
that might, the calculus buildup that you might have. And then a deep cleaning is actually
getting up underneath the gums, scaling out any calculus or debris, or what we call is
like “barnacles” of calculus on your teeth that can grow up underneath your gums. If
you have, if you have been prescribed that you do need a deep cleaning; nine times out
of ten you might have “barnacles” of calculus that are adhered to the root, and which in
effect will also cause perio disease, which will start eating away at your gums and start
to make your gums recessed and inflamed, and that’s why you get, sometimes your gums tend
to bleed whenever you floss them. So, if you have been prescribed to have a deep cleaning
done you definitely want to go forward into treatment, listen to your general dentist
and your hygienist, because they are only benefiting you for to have a deep cleaning,
cause’ you’re getting a more thorough cleaning, versus just a regular cleaning. So once again,
my name is Michelle, and I’m a dental assistant with Solutionz, and hopefully, I just explained
to you to help you understand better what a deep cleaning is.

  • that sounds painful

  • would love to watch a clip of this chick brushing her tongue and hocking out some phlegm ..

  • how often should i deep clean

  • Utterly useless explanation. If you have type II or more periodontal disease, you may be a candidate for scaling and root planing (which is "deep cleaning") If your dentist or hygenist will not speak in clinical terms, and explain the meaning of the terms, find another dental health care provider.

  • My gums has been bleeding for almost two weeks now everytime i brushes.
    it's on my anterior mandibula parts. the incisors, especially the canines (fangs) area.

    my friend (a dental graduate) says it's calculus, needed to be cleaned. true?

  • go back to school

  • @LyeLye no.. not calcium, i meant calculus.. I'm not a dental student but i'm sure calculus is the term they use for particles from anything like food that we chew, that don't give any benefit, stacks up or creating layers on the teeth. causing it to appear not clean, feels not clean.

  • i just had my first basic teeth cleaning they did not numb me i go back in a week for a deeper cleaning will they numb me then

  • i had to get a crown replaced but here in the u.s. it cost an arm an a leg so i went to mexico t.j. and i paid about a 150.00 to 170.00 so i figure a procedure of this type could cost much less in mexico.. so run fo the border.
