Deep Teeth Cleaning in Colorado Springs

Healthy Smiles That Last a Lifetime

For years, dentists have been telling us to brush our teeth and floss daily. You’ve likely heard all the warnings about losing your teeth to infection and decay by not brushing and maintaining with floss. After bacteria consumes the sugars left by your food, it will excrete acids that eat away at the enamel.

We recommend that our patients get their teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year to prevent any further tooth decay and/or gum disease. Our deep teeth cleaning services can remove plaque and tarter to help prevent infections and teeth from falling out.

Routine Teeth Cleaning vs. Deep Teeth Cleaning

A dental deep cleaning is different from a routine teeth cleaning because it targets the areas people can’t easily reach themselves. Exams and check-up cleanings are good to remove the plaque that’s built up on your teeth, with the ultimate goal of preventing the start of infection. A deep cleaning is required to stop the progression of an already-infected tooth by reaching the spaces in-between gums and all the way down to the roots of the tooth.

Do I Need a Deep Cleaning?

Only a licensed dental hygienist can tell if a deep cleaning is needed. If, during your dental visit, we determine a risk of periodontal disease, you’ll most likely be a candidate for a deep teeth cleaning.

Here are a few common symptoms that may warrant the service:

  • Deep Pockets: If your pockets are 4mm or greater between your gums and tooth, you may be at risk of periodontal disease, which means you’ll need a deeper teeth cleaning than normal.
  • Minimal Dental Check-Ups: If you haven’t seen the dentist in over a year or haven’t kept up with your routine appointments, a deeper cleaning will most likely be needed.
  • Severe Plaque or Tartar: In instances of major bacteria build-up, our dentist will use a special dental instrument to clean and remove the area.
