Deep teeth cleaning removes the buildup of plaque and tartar from your teeth and from beneath the gumline. Your dentist is likely to recommend deep teeth cleaning if you have gum disease.

  • A scaling tool will be used to remove plaque and tartar, a tool which can access areas where the gums have pulled away.  
  • After scaling comes root planing, where your dentist smooths the tooth roots and gum tissue.
