A deep periodontal clean involves in-depth cleaning of the teeth above and below the gum line. Our periodontal specialist will thoroughly clean the teeth to eliminate plaque and stains to leave the teeth looking and feeling cleaner and brighter.
Deep cleaning treatment will normally be carried out over a number of appointments – depending on the areas to be treated. Don’t worry. Treatment will be carried out under local anaesthetic so that it does not cause pain or discomfort.
Following treatment some people may need to take a short course of antibiotics and you may find your gums bleed and are swollen. This will quickly settle down and over the next few weeks the gums should become healthier and your breath fresher.
By continuing to follow your hygienist’s advanced brushing and cleaning advice at home you will get the maximum benefit from treatment.
