What is a deep cleaning?

A deep cleaning is also referred to as root planing and scaling. It is a procedure for patients who have plaque and calculus build up underneath the gum line. This build up harbors bacteria that can cause inflammation and periodontal disease. A deep cleaning removes the plaque and calculus from the roots and tooth surfaces.
