Deep cleaning, regular dental cleaning, what is the difference?

Posted on Friday, Sep. 25th 2009 10:31 AM by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Hygiene 1 Comment »

I not clear on whats the difference between the two cleaning.  I only know that one is much more expensive. Which a course is the one that the dentist seems to always want to do.   Okay so I only go to the dentist  once a year for a cleaning unlike the suggest two times.  I feel I take really good care of my teeth and do not want to spend the money for going twice when it can be used on paying my bills.  

When I do go to the dentist, He tell me that I really need a deep cleaning now.  Having a deep cleaning done would cost me $95.00 a quad totaling out to $380.00 compared to $75.00 for a cleaning.  When I tell him no just give me a cleaning, he kinda makes me feel bad and says that to think about having the deep cleaning because it is what I really need.  I do not know I feel that they are just trying to get more money from me.  So anyone know why I should spend all this money for a deep cleaning?

  1. benson Jeffys Says:

    Regular Cleaning – Routine Cleaning(Prophylaxis) is:

    A Regular Cleaning (Prophylaxis) removes plaque and tartar only from the tooth surface and not from the tooth root. After having a clean done, you may notice that your teeth appear slightly more sensitive. Since the dentist removed any plaque and tartar that had coated the tooth surface. However, the sensitive should only be for a short while. In order to prevent additional plaque and tartar build up after the dental cleaning, it is important to bush and floss after every meal.

    Deep Cleaning -(Subgingival Scaling, Root Planing)

    A Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing)is also done to remove tartar from ones teeth. However it also removes the hard crusty calculus. Calculus is found around and below the gum line and is loaded with bacteria. A Deep Cleaning is a method of treating gum disease.
