Deep cleaning is also referred to as root planning or scaling. Scaling involves the removal of tartar and plaques from the teeth surface and from the pocket between the gums and the teeth. The Miami dental hygienist at Advanced Family Dental can perform root planning and scaling using ultrasonic or electric instruments. This will make the procedure more effective.
Root planning is the other aspect of deep cleaning. The dental hygienist at Advanced Family Dental will remove tartar and plaques from the surface of your teeth with a scaling instrument. Because we are concerned about your dental health, and are very thorough with our job, the procedure will require at least two visits to our facility. After the procedure, your dentist will arrange a follow-up visit to check on your teeth and gums, and to confirm that they’re getting healthier.
