Deep Cleaning Treatment in Albuquerque

Book an Appointment with Our Friendly Albuquerque Dentists

Teeth cleaning should be a regular part of your oral health care routine: brushing and flossing at home and, every six months or so, a professional cleaning from your dentist. In some cases, however, a deeper cleaning may be needed to prevent gum disease from worsening. In these cases, dental scaling and root planing may be required.

At Dental House, we take every appointment as an opportunity to inform patients of their dental treatment options and forecast any potential health risks. If you are at risk for gum disease or currently suffering its effects, our caring Albuquerque family dentists are prepared to provide a deep cleaning treatment and restore your oral health.

Don't allow issues like gum disease to worsen over time. Contact us today to schedule a treatment. Saturday appointments are available.

Dental Scaling & Root Planing

Dental scaling and root planing are two deep cleaning methods specifically aimed at addressing gum disease. Gum disease can cause an inflammation of your gums that, if left untreated, can lead to further health complications. Dental scaling and root planing can help remove plaque and bacteria from critical areas and allow your gums to heal.

Removing plaque and bacteria can include:

  • Dental scaling: a combination of ultrasonic scaling and instrumental scaling at the gum line to loosen and remove tartar, plaque, and bacteria
  • Root planing: detailed scaling that is performed beneath the gum line to remove hard-to-reach plaque from the root of each tooth

"Will It Hurt?"

Most patients' chief concern is the level of discomfort involved with any dental procedure. The truth is that, for dental scaling and root planing, it varies for every patient. The inflammation that comes with gum disease can make gums sensitive to touch, which makes some discomfort a possibility for this procedure.

Before proceeding, our dentists always ask patients about any discomfort they're feeling and then offer options (like local anesthesia) to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible throughout the process. Discuss any concerns you have about discomfort with our dentists—we're ready to listen and answer your questions.
