Common Questions About Deep Cleanings and Exams

How do deep cleanings and exams get rid of gum infection?

Sometimes a deep cleaning is all you need to get rid of the plaque, tartar, and bacteria in and around your gumline that causes the infection. Of course, we start out with an examination to determine the level of infection in your gums. That’s when we determine the best treatment option for you. We may need to have you return again to ensure the disease hasn’t returned to your gums.

Will my gums hurt after a deep cleaning?

Your gums may be a little tender after the cleaning, but that should only last a day or two. It’s also normal to have some sensitivity to hot and cold food or beverages. This is all normal. We’ll give you aftercare instructions to make sure your gums heal properly. Your gums will look and feel great again in no time!

Will I need to return again after my deep cleaning?

Because each patient is different, it’s difficult to answer without a full examination of your mouth. However, it’s often necessary for a patient to come see us again after their deep cleaning to ensure the infection is completely eliminated. It’s important to us that your gums remain healthy and the disease doesn’t return to harm your smile.
