Deep Gum Cleaning

My dentist said I need a deep gum cleaning. What is that?

Best Answer


  • A deep cleaning is to help treat periodontal disease. It involves removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria above and below the gum surface. Also, the roots of the teeth are also smoothed to prevent future accumulation of bacteria. This treatment helps gums to heal.
