Done with my deep cleaning!



May 8, 2019
Yesterday finally I had my upper right quadrant and last one part of my deep cleaning . they were waiting for my extractions to heal more. My hygienist schedule another appointment in 2 weeks to “check up”. Is she going to measurement my pockets? Didn't expect coming again, Maybe she wants to see around my extraction sites, don't know. Whoever is new.. Im always scare and anxious To ask or talk about future treatments and next procedures.
Bravo! Such courage.

You’ve come a long way.
Congrats on getting the last portion done! Based on the hygienist referring to it as a “check up,” it sounds like a follow up exam to assess healing..that may include measuring pockets or may just be a visual inspection. She may also use that time to educate on proper after care and maintenance.
