Regular cleaning removes plaque and tartar from above the gumline. A deep cleaning, on the other hand, removes plaque and tartar from below the gumline.
Gum disease causes a space or gap between your teeth and gums, where tartar and plaque can become trapped. Cleaning below the gum line removes this build-up. Deep cleaning involves gum scaling and root planing. It usually takes place over two or more visits and involves gum scaling and root planing. Each visit can take 1 to 2 hours.
The tooth scaling appointment is when our dentist removes plaque and tartar from below the gumline. During your root planning visit, our dentist removes plaque and tartar that forms on the roots of your teeth. This helps reduce the space between your teeth and gums, helping your gums reattach to the teeth.
