5 Signs You May Need a Deep Dental Cleaning

Are you feeling self-conscious about bad breath or bleeding gums? Here are 5 warning signs that you need to visit your Calgary dentist for a deep teeth cleaning appointment.

We have so many responsibilities that it can be easy to neglect some of the lesser thought about necessities, such as regular visits to the dentist for checkups and dental cleanings. However, going for regular teeth cleanings is important for more than just cosmetic reasons.

They will:

  • Make your future visits to the dentist cheaper
  • Allow your hygienist to remove any stains and brighten your smile
  • Reduce your chances of developing gum disease or tooth loss
  • Allow for the detection of early signs of issues such as broken fillings or tooth fractures
  • Give your dentist the chance to look for and detect early signs of cancer

5 Warning Signs You Need a Deep Dental Clean

Gum disease doesn’t always cause pain or show visible symptoms, which is why it can be difficult to detect when you need deep cleaning. When you visit your dentist for a checkup or regular cleaning, he/she can examine your gums and determine if you require deep cleaning.

Some warning signs that you should look out for include:

  • Bleeding or red gums
  • Puffy and tender gums
  • Halitosis (persistent bad breath)
  • Unpleasant taste in your mouth
  • Receding gums

You may also notice that some of your teeth feel loose. In addition, if your gums hurt when you chew and/or brush, you could have gum disease and may require deep cleaning.

Remember: While it may seem like a hassle to visit your dentist regularly for checkups or cleanings, doing so could lead to cheaper dental costs and less need for more extensive treatments down the road.



What Is Deep Dental Cleaning?

A deep dental cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is often recommended when your dentist notices signs that you have gum disease. A deep cleaning may be suggested because it will:

  • Help prevent tooth loss
  • Enhance your oral and overall health
  • Lower your risk of developing heart disease

During the process, your dentist will do a more in-depth and detailed job than when performing routine cleaning. They will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, as well as from the pocket areas between your teeth and gums.

Benefits of Opting For a Deep Dental Cleaning

In most cases, a deep dental cleaning is recommended for patients with gum disease. However, you don’t need this condition to take advantage of the treatment. Regular deep cleanings have many benefits, such as:

  • Improvements to your cardiovascular health
  • Lower long-term dental costs
  • Tooth loss prevention
  • Lower risk of developing gum disease
