Deep Dental Cleanings in North Carolina
Your Excellent Deep Cleanings Are Found Here
Your smile is our first priority at CarolinasDentist, and we’ll give you something to smile about with our next-level cleaning services.
Gum Disease Treatment
A healthy mouth is more than just a fantastic smile. Your gums need care, too. Gum disease has been linked to a variety of other health issues including heart disease and diabetes. If you have red, swollen, bleeding, or receding gums (or if you have bad breath or loose teeth), then you may have gum disease.
We have different gum disease treatments available depending on the severity of your case. Two of these include professional dental cleanings as well as scaling and root planing (removing plaque and tartar from around the gum line and then smoothing rough spots).
Oral Cancer Screening
Another case here of an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Our keen-eyed team will help spot any potential for oral cancers, catching them before they advance.
Deep Cleaning FAQs
Gum disease is frequently caused by poor oral hygiene. However, it can be caused and influenced by many other factors, like genetics, hormone changes, smoking, and taking certain medications. Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease, and we always want to help patients reverse gum disease early on when it is still completely reversible. If your gum disease has progressed into periodontitis, we can help you keep your teeth and gums as clean and healthy as possible.
Periodontal deep cleanings are usually performed when plaque and tartar begin to collect below the gumline as well as above it. When this happens, gum pockets form, and these pockets need to be cleaned to avoid things like tooth loss, tooth decay, and gum recession. If your gums are very red, sensitive, and look puffy, it may be because a deep cleaning is required to maintain your gum health. Our team would be happy to assess your smile and make a personalized recommendation for you.
One of the best ways to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible is by practicing great oral hygiene at home and visiting our office at least twice per year for routine cleanings and dental exams. If you smoke or chew tobacco, quitting or reducing these habits can also greatly improve your oral health as well as your overall health. For specific questions regarding your unique oral health journey, we recommend scheduling a visit with our team.

Our Trusted Brand of Gentle Dentistry Goes Hand in Hand with Your Deep Cleanings
It’s said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is truly the case when it comes to your oral health, especially deep cleanings. Even if your dental deep cleaning is your only oral health concern, you should still visit our dental clinic for a professional teeth cleaning and exam every six months so we can make sure everything is in tip-top shape. That way we can deal with problems (like cavities and gum disease) while they’re still small.
Prior to your deep cleaning, we will evaluate your overall oral health; take X-rays to detect issues; remove stains, plaque, and tartar; polish your teeth; and provide an oral cancer screening. (We use an ultrasonic scaler that sprays away debris from teeth, which is a big improvement upon the uncomfortable scraping of traditional tools. We are also happy to give you pointers for at-home oral care.)
We’ll meet to craft your personalized preventive oral health program, as it is associated with your deep cleaning. We take these steps to save you time, stress and money by utilizing preventive care that keeps problems from occurring or stops them in their tracks altogether. Our variety of hygiene services will keep your teeth and gums healthy and limit your risk of future problems.

We Provide the Relief of Dental Sedation Therapy
You’re bound to find that with any advanced oral procedure, there’s the possibility that you may have some discomfort—and that could be the case during your deep cleaning procedure. That’s just part of the territory that we have to travel down when treating some dental problems. And that’s where a good bit of our behind-the-scenes works starts. Because at CarolinasDentist, we fully understand that dental anxiety can become an obstacle to taking good care of your teeth. More than 20 percent of people skip their dental appointments because they have some level of fear about going to the dentist. We don’t want that to happen with you and your deep cleaning. So, we employ everything that modern dentistry has to offer, including the best, most effective solutions for finding peace of mind in the dental chair. Sedation dentistry is just one of those options for easing your dental anxiety.
