The deep cleaning process may require multiple appointments to complete, depending on the extent of the buildup and the overall health of the gums. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to help minimize discomfort.
After the deep cleaning procedure, patients may experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity for a few days. Over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications can be used to manage any discomfort.
Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help prevent the need for deep cleanings in the future. Patients with gum disease may require more frequent cleanings to help maintain healthy gums and prevent further progression of the disease.
Overall, deep dental cleaning is an effective way to remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and gums, helping to prevent gum disease and improve overall oral health.
