Deep Cleaning Teeth

What is Deep Cleaning Teeth?

Deep cleaning teeth is a dental procedure that is used on those who have moderate to severe gum disease. It is a two step process that is designed to improve both the health of your gums and your teeth. The first step involved when deep cleaning teeth is what is known as scaling. Scaling removes plaque and tartar both above and below the gum line of the teeth. They clean all the way down to the bottom of the pocket. This also removes germs and bacteria. The next step in the deep cleaning teeth process is root planing. Root planing smooths the tooth root, which helps the gums to reattach to the tooth, smoothing out pockets.
