Deep Teeth Cleaning

Deep teeth cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a procedure used to treat gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontal disease. This is done by removing plaque and tartar above and below the gum line. Deep teeth cleanings help reduce discomfort, swelling, and bleeding of the gums. The main goal of a professional deep cleaning is to prevent gum disease, which is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults over age 40.
