I took a general cleaning and an x-ray. The dentist there told me I should do a deep cleaning next time because one of my molars has a visible tartar. I don't have any insurance and must pay out of pocket for that. Is my problem serious? If so, is a deep cleaning needed?

Subgingival calculus, leads to inflammation, which could lead to the onset of periodontal disease. Although it is not an emergency, I would still recommend doing a deep clean during your next check-up.
