Why Would I Need a Deep Cleaning?

A dental deep cleaning, sometimes referred to as gum therapy, is a treatment that cleans between the gums and the teeth, down to the roots. This type of cleaning involves the removal of bacteria, tartar, and other harmful debris in the teeth and gums. This process can also be referred to as root planing or periodontal scaling and may require several visits in order to complete the treatment. It is more extensive than a standard cleaning and is designed to treat gum disease and stop it from becoming worse.
