Dental Question--is Irrigation worth it?

So I went to the dentist after a few years of neglect and found out my gums aren't in the best of shape, so they recommended a Deep Cleaning. Fine, who am I to argue?

The problem: the total cost comes to $750 after insurance! However, I can get this reduced to $200-something if I decline the irrigation and the "direct placement of antibiotic into the gums" (for which I forgot the technical term.)

So does anyone know how effective those two are? Is it worth the massive price-tag, or is a normal deep cleaning sans those good enough?
