Deep Dental Cleaning Services

Serving the greater East Bay Area including San Leandro, Berkeley, Moraga, Oakland, Castro Valley CA

Amazing Smile offers deep dental cleaning services also known as scaling and root planning.

Regular dental cleanings focus on teeth at and above the gum line. These non-invasive cleanings are recommended for most patients every six months and play a critical role in maintaining good oral health.

Dental deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, involves special techniques to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria below the gum line down to your tooth roots. As a result, dental deep cleaning prevents gum disease from advancing and causing tooth loss.

Overall, the goal of regular cleaning is preventative maintenance, and the purpose of deep dental cleaning is to stop the progression of gum disease.

Benefits of Dental Deep Cleaning

Stops Progression of Periodontal Disease. Without plaque or tartar below your gumline, your gum infection can’t worsen.

Helps Treat Current Gum Infections. After you receive deep dental cleaning for your teeth, you can help your gum disease treatment be more effective by continuing to practice good oral hygiene habits.

Promotes Healing of the Gums. The bacteria in tartar is extremely irritating to your gums and left uncleaned, your gums will slowly detach from your teeth roots. Deep dental cleanings will arrest this process and help the gums heal

Eradicates Bad Breath. Plaque is a byproduct of mixing food and saliva that sticks to teeth. This sticky film provides the perfect environment for bacteria growth, leading to bad breath and tooth decay. A deep dental cleaning will ensure that you do not develop bad breath by removing the bacteria that causes it.

 Protects and Strengthens Your Roots and Jawbones. Did you know that your gums are actually the protective armor for your teeth and jawbone? When they become infected, they can start to peel away, exposing your roots and eventually your jawbone to damage. You can prevent this by having a deep dental cleaning to ensure you are protected from harmful gum infections.
