Does the deep cleaning hurt and how long will it take?

At our clinic the hygienist and dentist will first make absolutely sure that you know if you are a patient who needs deep cleaning or often called scaling and root planning.  The procedure, which includes cleaning beneath the gums is the very best was to ensure periodontal health. 

Before starting the deep cleaning our hygienists will make sure you are numb through the use of local anesthetic or laughing gas (if you choose to have laughing gas).  Throughout the procedure they will make sure you are experiencing no sensitivity.  The procedure can vary quite a bit depending on your needs, but most deep cleanings are completely in 1 to 2 hours.
