Dr. Smith provides deep dental cleanings, or prophylaxis, to help remove harmful bacteria from your mouth and manage your gum disease. These treatments are more intensive than regular dental cleanings or your at-home oral hygiene routine, and are designed to help you regain your oral health and avoid further damage to your teeth and gums. To make your appointment with our periodontist and learn more about deep dental cleanings in Merced, California, please call us today at 209-205-4657.

During your deep cleaning treatment, our periodontist will remove the plaque and tartar that have built up below your gum line and in areas of your mouth that are difficult to reach, and check for any problems that may be developing in your mouth. We will also polish your teeth to make them smoother and less likely to attract harmful bacteria.

If you have periodontal disease, we recommend that you receive a deep cleaning regularly. Depending on the severity of your disease and your oral health, the frequency of your visit may vary from twice a year to once every two years or so.

If you have questions about deep dental cleanings, please contact our office to speak with a member of our team and schedule your appointment with our periodontist.
