I have a history of and for the past five years, my dental hygienist had required me to have deep cleaning three times a year. She told I have to keep doing this to prevent my gum problem from getting worse. This is not covered by my insurance so I have to pay for it. My are healthy now, they are not swollen, don't hurt and they don't bleed even during the cleaning process. I maintain a good habit of brushing, flossing and mouth wash rinsing. I also had a laser treatment with some success. I want to go back to the normal cleaning that I am covered for but my dental hygienist refused to it.
Is there a regular pattern for deep cleaning? I think having 3 deep cleanings in a year is too much. I am thinking of going to another dentist now.
Please advise. Thanks a lot!
