Went to a new dentist today. I had been seeing my old one for about 5 years and he was okay, but I wasn't thrilled with a few things and a co-worker raved about her dentist, so I went. He recommended a "deep cleaning," which will take two office visits and lots of novocaine. He wanted to use lasers but said the more traditional scraping method would work too. He talked about cleaning out what flossing couldn't. Now, I am not a perfect flosser but I do floss pretty regularly. My fear is that this is an unnecessary procedure--my old dentist never said anything about deep cleaning. But perhaps he should have . . . Anyone with some wisdom?
