Faced any problems with deep cleaning of teeth?

I dont have any pain or tangible problems with my teeth and gums, yet the dentist recommended deep cleaning. What has been your experience with deep cleaning (disregard the money factor)? Did you see a marked difference in oral health? Were there any long term side effects?

    You generally can’t feel gum disease until it is way too late.

    Do it.

    Gums were less swollen a month later. I didn't really have a problem but they would bleed when the dentist flossed them. Turns out not flossing for your whole life isn't great for your gums and deep cleaning counteracts some of that.

      It's "deep" cleaning. Why do you reply without reading what it's actually about?

      OP
      What you referred to is the normal cleaning (above gums). And what is asked here is the deep cleaning (lift the gums and clean). The latter cannot be done without numbing as its painful to lift the gums.

      Yes - I refer to deep cleaning. My dentist told me that everyone over 30 should have it once a year. I have an issue with my gums already which is why I have it twice a year.

    I recommend doing it. It does a lot of good for the gums. They can be pretty sore for like a week after though.

    Especially if you have a history of neglecting to floss! Gum health sneaks up on you too.

    Even if you don’t have major issues it’s good for your gums and general oral health to get a deep cleaning once in a while.

      Yes. Its for buildup closer to and under the gums. Typically requires numbing.

      Deep cleaning - generally takes two sessions (one for each side) and they numb that area for 2-4 hours. Very useful and get it done once a year at least (I'm no doctor though)
