Scaling and Root Planing for a Vibrant Smile
Deep dental cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a specialized non-surgical procedure that involves meticulously removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria from below the gumline, followed by smoothing the tooth roots to discourage further buildup. This thorough cleaning addresses early-stage gum disease (gingivitis) and prevents its progression into more severe periodontitis, reducing inflammation, promoting gum healing, and creating an environment conducive to gum reattachment. Deep dental cleaning can help patients by halting disease advancement, improving gum health, preventing tooth loss, and fostering a healthier oral environment that contributes to overall well-being.
