At the beginning of the procedure, we apply local anesthesia to the areas to be treated. This means you will be awake for the procedure; You may feel some pressure and slight discomfort, but you will not feel pain.
Deep cleaning consists of two parts. First, your dentist will scale your teeth using an ultrasonic instrument or a handpiece such as a periodontal scaler or curette. This scaling removes plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. Your dentist will then do root planning to help your gums reattach to your teeth.
