Deep Dental Cleanings in Greenwood Village, CO

Welcome to Greenwood Dental Arts

Exceptional oral health care that will make your whole family smile.

At Greenwood Dental Arts, we believe in the power of a healthy smile. Our team of dedicated dental professionals specialize in deep dental cleanings. Although deep cleanings aren’t necessary for every patient, those with gingivitis (the first stage of gum disease), may require a deep cleaning to prevent bone loss and stop further damage.  When left untreated, gingivitis can progress into periodontal disease and negatively impact your overall systemic health.  Our team employs a comprehensive approach to ensure each patient receives the treatment they need to maintain their oral as well as overall health.

What is a Deep Dental Cleaning?

Regular dental cleanings are an essential part of maintaining good oral hygiene, but did you know there are different levels of cleaning?   A deep dental cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, deep reaches beyond the gum line to remove plaque and tartar buildup.  During a deep cleaning, your hygienist will use a hand-held scaler to manually scrape plaque from your teeth above and below the gumline.  They may also use an ultrasonic tool that sprays water and uses a vibrating tip to loosen and help wash tartar away. This process is essential for preserving your dental health and is a cornerstone of the services offered at Greenwood Dental Arts.

The Importance of Deep Cleanings for Oral Health:

Why is a deep teeth cleaning necessary?  When left untreated, plaque and tartar accumulation below the gumline can lead to inflammation and infection.  At times, a standard cleaning isn’t enough.  If bacteria invade below the gumline, a deep dental cleaning will be needed to prevent the issue from advancing into periodontists. Our team at Greenwood Dental Arts is adept at addressing these issues before they develop into more serious conditions. 

Can It Prevent Future Dental Issues?

Can a deep cleaning prevent future dental issues? Absolutely. Regular deep cleanings are a proactive measure to safeguard your oral health. By removing plaque and tartar buildup, deep cleanings help prevent the development of gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health problems.

Benefits of Deep Dental Cleanings:

Our patients often report a range of benefits following their deep dental cleaning appointment including:

  • Fresh breath and reduced gum bleeding.
  • Lower risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Deep cleanings contribute significantly to overall oral health.

How is a Deep Cleaning Performed?

At Greenwood Dental Arts, we use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to ensure a thorough and comfortable experience. To reduce discomfort our  team will apply local anesthetic to numb the area, then meticulously clean each tooth, focusing on the area beneath the gum line to remove harmful buildup.

How Often Should I Get One?

While the frequency of deep cleanings varies from person to person, we typically recommend a standard teeth cleaning appointment every six months. However, some patients may require more frequent visits, depending on their individual oral health needs. During your dental cleaning appointment, our team will assess your oral health and provide personalized recommendations.
