Regular cleaning vs deep cleaning?
What is the difference between getting a deep cleaning and a regular cleaning? i had a deep cleaning 9 months ago, my first one ever, first cleaning ever. since then, my teeth are just full of plaque and tartar again. dark yellow, caked on the back of my front teeth. the front of my teeth look decent, but the back is horrible and pieces of tartar are falling out, leaving holes on the back of my teeth.
anyways, i'm scheduled in 4 weeks for a regular cleaning, due to the time i can get off from work and was wondering, what is the difference? will a regular cleaning be able to get the really hard tartar off my teeth or will i need a deep cleaning for that?
