Take a Vitrual Tour Periodontal Deep Cleaning

Periodontal Prophylaxis

Periodontal prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure performed to thoroughly clean the teeth. after periodontal treatment is completed. It is an important preventative dental treatment for retarding the progression of periodontal disease and gingivitis.


The dentist may offer a local anesthetic if your deep cleaning is likely to be more irritating. General soreness, sensitive teeth and bleeding gums are normal after deep cleaning at the dentist's office. Some effects are due to the cleaning tools themselves making contact with inflamed gums – which bleed easily.


Scaling and root planing cleans between the gums and the teeth down to the roots and is an effective treatment against gum disease before it gets more severe. ... If left untreated, however, the bacteria begins to cause the gum to pull away from the tooth and causes pockets to form


Eating / Diet: You may eat as tolerated after the numbness has worn off. Avoid sticky, hard (such as ice cubes, nuts, popcorn, chips), brittle, spicy, highly seasoned, or acidic foods in your diet. Foods such as soups, pasta, scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese etc. are best.
