Deep Cleaning or Regular Cleaning? Many patients make their appointments for a “cleaning” and don’t know that there are different types of dental cleanings.

There are 4 types of dental cleanings:

  1. Prophylaxis “regular cleaning”.
  2. “Gross debridement”.
  3. “Deep Cleaning” or Scaling and root planning.
  4. Periodontal maintenance.

Deep Cleaning or Regular Cleaning?

The dentist must determine the type of cleaning needed after conducting a complete dental examination that includes x-rays. It is important that the patient knows the indications for the type of cleaning recommended by the dentist.

  1. Prophylaxis: Dental prophylaxis includes scaling and polishing procedures to remove coronal plaque, calculus and stains. Some patients may require more than one appointment or one extended appointment to complete a prophylaxis. Prophylaxis is done every 6 months.
  2. Full mouth debridement: It’s a type of cleaning performed to enable comprehensive periodontal evaluation and diagnosis. The removal of subgingival and/or supragingival plaque and calculus that obstructs the ability to perform an oral evaluation. This is a preliminary procedure and does not preclude the need for other procedures. A re-evaluation is necessary after a month to determine of the patient may need deep cleanings or just regular cleanings.
  3. “Deep Cleaning“ or periodontal scaling and root planning, per quadrant.  This procedure involves instrumentation of the crown and root surfaces of the teeth to remove plaque and calculus from these surfaces. Patients with periodontal disease (active bone loss) require cleaning, which is therapeutic rather than prophylactic.
  4. Periodontal maintenance procedures (following deep cleanings). This procedure is for patients who have completed periodontal treatment and includes removal of the bacterial flora form crevicular and pocket areas, scaling and polishing of the teeth, and a review of the patient’s plaque control efficiency. Periodontal maintenance procedures is recommended every 3-4 months.
