After a deep cleaning my dentist is now telling me that I have to go back in 3 months. Would that be to get a regular cleaning done or to have another deep cleaning? Because they made me think that it was for another deep cleaning. The pockets that I have are 4 and 5.

  • After 3 months whether they do prophy or they will do deep cleaning depends on condition of your gums and the prognosis. If the pocket depth has decreased and  your gums are healthy then the dentist will do the routine prophy or perio maintainenance but if the condition has not improved the you may need deep cleaning. So maintain good oral hygiene. Follow al instructions given by  your dentist. for more info on deep cleaning, you can check the following link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dental-scaling-24.aspx
