The requirement for a regular or deep cleaning is determined by your dentist on the basis of comprehensive examination. During the examination, your dentist usually checks the condition of the periodontium and the status of oral hygiene. If the oral hygiene is found to be in a compromised state, you will be advised for deep cleaning.
While carrying out the regular teeth cleaning procedure, your dentist will eliminate both the soft deposit layer (also called plaque) and firm deposits (also called as calculus) stuck on your teeth. These deposits have the potential to cause cavities on teeth and gum problems. The greatest benefit of regular teeth cleaning is that the development of gum diseases is avoided or intercepted.
