Deep Dental Cleaning Gardena, CA

Do you have an unhealthy amount of plaque buildup that is causing other oral health problems? A deep dental cleaning is the best way to eliminate your plaque and restore your smile's health and beauty.

At Gardena Dental Care, we always put your oral health first, which is why we provide the very best in deep dental cleanings. We ensure that any present plaque or bacteria will be removed comfortably and efficiently, regardless of the size of the buildup.

What Is a Deep Dental Cleaning?

A deep dental cleaning is the process where we skillfully remove plaque and bacteria that has collected on your teeth and underneath the gum line. This type of dental cleaning is necessary when a traditional cleaning cannot effectively remove all the existing plaque and bacteria. Dr. Omid Barkhordar will use his expert knowledge and training to decide if a deep dental cleaning is right for you.

Another name for a deep dental cleaning is scaling and root planing (SRP).

When Is a Deep Dental Cleaning Needed?

Deep dental cleanings are recommended in cases of gingivitis and periodontitis, where the gums are becoming inflamed and infected from bacterial growth.

What Is Periodontal (Gum) Disease?

Gingivitis and periodontitis are two levels of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a common oral health problem. How does it happen? Well, when plaque and tartar builds up, it leads to the growth of bacteria. It’s the bacteria that’s the problem. Bacteria feed on plaque and then they emit acids that eat away at tooth enamel and inflame gums.

The process starts with mild gum inflammation called gingivitis. If left unchecked, it expands and becomes an active infection called periodontitis. Periodontal disease can cause receding gums, tooth decay, and bone loss in its most severe stages.

How Does Deep Teeth Cleaning Differ From Routine Periodontal Cleaning?

A deep teeth cleaning (aka scaling and root planing) is different from a routine periodontal cleaning. A routine periodontal cleaning is like a regular tooth cleaning except it’s a bit more thorough. However, it’s not quite as in-depth as scaling and root planing. The deep cleaning that we do for cases of periodontal disease is more of a treatment than a regular cleaning, whereas routine periodontal cleanings are more for ongoing maintenance.

What Are the Benefits of a Deep Dental Cleaning?

Deep dental cleanings can be critical in halting the progression of periodontal disease. They are an important tool in treating gingivitis and periodontitis. Some of the benefits of a deep dental cleaning at Gardena Dental Care include:

What Is the Process of a Deep Dental Cleaning?

The deep dental cleaning process begins with a visit to our state-of-the-art office for a consultation. Your consultation will include x-rays and a professional exam from our esteemed Dr. Barkhordar. He will personally work with you to develop a customized dental care plan.

If you are in need of a deep dental cleaning, we will first administer a safe numbing agent on your gums. (If you need more sedation, talk to us and we’ll go over options to make sure you experience a relaxing appointment.) We will then proceed to carefully remove any bacteria and plaque that is present below the gum line. Deep cleanings can take one or more appointments to complete, and will be adjusted based on the degree of plaque buildup and your individual needs.

What Are the Costs for a Deep Dental Cleaning in Gardena?

Deep dental cleanings are periodontal treatments and not regular cleanings and therefore cost more. The costs are based on dividing the mouth into four equal quadrants (top left, top right, bottom left, and bottom right). Each quadrant costs around $150 to $250. You do not need to get all the quadrants done at the same time, although it is typical to have two done at a time. Common dental insurance providers often provide some help for these costs, although you may need to have a special periodontal plan.
