Deep Cleaning & Scaling
Scaling is procedure that meticulously removes contamination toxins,
micro-organisms, plaque, tartar, cementum, dentin that is rough and/or
permeated by calculus from around, below and under the gum
line down to the bottom of the pocket. This is done to remove
biofilm, calculus, and toxin down to the bottom of each periodontal pocket
in order to obtain a healing response.
Root planing involves smoothing the root surfaces of your teeth with thin
curettes so gum tissue can firmly reattach to roots that are smooth and
clean to prevent tooth loss and sensitivity issues. This procedure makes
it more difficult for placque to adhere to the root surfaces.
