Regular cleaning is a cleaning procedure recommended to be done every 3-6 months. It removes build-up, plaque, and tartar on your teeth. It also polishes your teeth, leaving them clean to the touch. This procedure is strongly recommended because it prevents periodontal infections or inflammations and keeps your dental and periodontal health in its best state.
Deep cleaning (periodontal cleaning) is necessary when the gum is infected and is in need of treatment. This treatment involves two procedures. First, the doctor will clean remove all plaque on your teeth and reach slightly into the gum, cleaning the inside of the gum and the base of the teeth (scaling process). Then, your roots will be treated so that your gums will return to its regular position as it gradually heals (root cleaning process).

Regular cleaning takes a total of 20-30 minutes. The total treatment time depends on the amount of plaque and tartar on your teeth.
Deep cleaning may be done in one day, but it is usually done over a course of 2 to 4 sessions. Typically, one arch (upper or lower teeth) is treated per session and takes more or less than an hour. This also depends on the severity of your infection or inflammation.
There is no recovery necessary from regular cleaning.
Deep cleaning includes the use of anesthetics on the gums. It takes around 2 hours for it to wear off. After this, you are able to return to regular activities. Your gums will heal during the few weeks after your treatment and gradually return back to its healthy state.
