Deep cleaning sessions treat more than just the teeth. This treatment is meant to address gum disease and stop it from progressing. Here’s what happens during this procedure:

Key takeaways:

  • Your dentist will use local anaesthesia to reduce discomfort when working around the gumline.

You may also need medication post-procedure to reduce discomfort and inflammation.
