Dental deep cleaning in Royal Palm Beach, FL, is a way to clear debris and tartar from below the gumline.

Regular Cleaning vs. Deep Cleaning

A regular tooth cleaning—as part of your six-month dental checkup—allows the hygienist to clear away debris left behind by your toothbrush and floss. The stubborn plaque and bacteria require special tools for complete eradication.man getting a deep cleaning in royal palm beach

We perform deep cleanings if you’ve been diagnosed with periodontitis, the advanced form of gum disease.

Periodontitis is a severe condition that can cost you your smile. It can even compromise your physical health. Gingivitis, the mild form of gum disease, is reversible; however, once it advances to periodontitis, we can only prevent it from progressing and further damaging your oral health. 

Deep teeth cleaning, also called scaling and root planing, involves using specialized instruments to work below the gum, recontour gum tissue, and smooth tooth roots to promote reattachment of gum tissue to the teeth.

We can perform deep cleanings under local anesthetic—depending on your needs, you may be a candidate for less invasive laser treatment.
