The process of deep dental cleaning involves techniques referred to as scaling and root planning. This procedure, as its name says, is a deeper more intense cleaning than just a regular dental cleaning. The scaling procedure entails removing the plaque and tartar from the tooth’s surface and from the areas between the teeth and gums. Root planning is a deep cleaning method that involves using a scaling instrument to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of the roots of your teeth.
This deep dental cleaning procedure sometimes is completed in 2-3 visits. Possibly a follow up appointment may be necessary in order to make sure that the gum pockets are not deeper and that they are getting healthier. After a few weeks you will see your gums getting healthy, as long as you continue to do your oral hygiene routine daily. When gum pockets are too deep and you may be suffering from periodontal disease, come to the experts at Pro Dental Centers for a deep dental cleaning.
