What Is a Deep Cleaning?

A deep cleaning, also called scaling and root planing, is sometimes necessary to treat gingivitis or moderate to severe gum disease. If you have been away from the dentist for a while, bacteria may have spread beyond your gum line. This creates a deep space between your teeth and gums. These “pockets” are a sign of gum disease, and a deep cleaning is necessary to eliminate them and stop the spread of infection.

  • Why Do I Need a Deep Cleaning?
    • To maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.
    • To prevent decay, infection, gum disease, and tooth loss.
    • To remove stubborn plaque and tartar that your toothbrush cannot reach.
    • To catch problems early, before they become more expensive.
    • To ensure whole body health and well-being.
  • Does It Hurt?

    No. We’ll use a local anesthetic to numb your gums and make sure you remain comfortable. You may experience soreness after the procedure, but it will dissipate within hours.

Hear From Our Patients

Icon of five stars
"I recently had my first baby, and I think my pregnancy really did a number on my teeth. They suggested a deep scaling and root planing. They even had the manager come in and explain what my insurance covered. They were very gentle when they did the cleaning. I’m not even that sore after the numbing wore off, even though they used a laser to clean. I have to say this is the best dentist I’ve been to!"

- Jenna B.


"Today was my first experience at Providence Dental. Checking in was simple, especially since most of the new patient forms were available online. Everything was good from the X-rays, examination, cleaning, deep cleaning, removing one old filling, and taking care of one new cavity. Great staff from the front office to the doctor, hygienist, and others in the back."

- Michael M.


"Overall, it was an excellent experience! Everyone, from the front office staff to the dentists, was very knowledgeable and super friendly. This office is very tech-savvy. They have the newest and best equipment. I definitely give them 5 stars; I would give them more if I could. I think I just found a new dentist for the entire family. You will love it, too!"

- Paul P.


Frequently Asked Questions about Deep Cleanings

  • Do I really need a deep cleaning?

    Your hygienist will only recommend scaling and root planing if it’s necessary for your oral health. Their diagnosis is based on the buildup of plaque and bacteria, the condition of your gums, and any history of gum disease.

    To schedule a deep cleaning in Las Vegas, please contact our team at Providence Dental.

  • How often should I get a deep cleaning?
    Your hygienist may recommend periodontal maintenance following your dental cleaning. If you keep these appointments and maintain good oral health habits at home, you may eventually be able to resume dental cleanings at 6-month intervals. We do understand that our patients lead busy lives, so we’ll never judge you if you’re behind on your cleaning.
  • How can I prepare for a deep cleaning?
    Brush your teeth before your appointment to remove food and plaque.
