As we get older we get more used to having to maintain our body; it's only natural. One thing we can’t forget to take regular care of is our teeth, having a bigger impact on our lives than simple aesthetics.

We here at Dental House are adamant about this. Considering that about 25.9% of adults (between the ages of 20-44) have untreated dental issues, you’ll want to make sure that you have a regular deep clean.

Who Should Consider Deep Cleaning?

Some people might have noticed that, over time, their gums may be bleeding more than usual. Others might experience a little looseness with some of their teeth or that their gums might be receding.

All three cases are symptoms of unhealthy dental hygiene. Don’t worry though, these are easily addressed with a few deep cleaning sessions at Dental House.

How Do You Clean Your Teeth?

For the most part, the answer to these symptoms is periodontal scaling. For others, root planning might be a better option.

Periodontal scaling is the procedure where the dentist removes the tartar and plaque stuck beneath the gum line. Regular tooth brushing is not enough to get all the particles out.

On the other hand, root planning involves removing both tartar and plaque from the roots of your teeth.

In either case, the procedures will help decrease any spacing present between your teeth and gums. This helps you prevent more particles from getting stuck in those spaces.

What Does Deep Cleaning Fight Against?

Like we said before, we here at Dental House are adamant about the importance of regular dental deep cleaning. It’s the best way to keep your mouth, and the rest of your body, healthy after all.

Of course, you can expect there will be a few more benefits than that. While most people don’t know it, about 10% of all people have some form of periodontal disease. These diseases normally show the following symptoms:

  • Tooth pain
  • Problems with bad breath
  • Bleeding gums
  • Strange or bad tastes in the mouth
  • Recession of gums
  • The buildup of bacteria in the mouth
  • Teeth shift position
  • Sensitive and swollen gums

Another reason it is important to address these issues is the risk of losing teeth if left untreated. Swollen gums, specifically, are a symptom of bacteria reaching the roots of your teeth which can lead to the eventual loss of the affected teeth.

While strict tooth brushing is important, the issue is that the average person can’t get into the gum lining once the bacteria reaches that area. For that, a trained professional is required.


We hope this article has helped enlighten you on the many benefits that come with deep cleanings. As you can see, thorough cleanings are crucial for your oral health. By making it a point to undergo cleanings regularly, you are effectively prolonging the lifespan of your teeth and promoting good oral health.
