Deep cleaning: Not likely, if cleared by your cardiologist.

Should not: If you are concerned you should speak to your cardiologist and dentist to see if they would like you to have prophylactic antibiotics, but it is not considered necessary by the aha. You should know that a deep cleaning can very well cause you to have bacterimia which means you have bacteria in your blood. This does not mean you will have complications though. This happens more than people think.
