Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)

Sometimes what’s needed is a good, deep cleaning. This is particularly true of your teeth, where debris and tartar can hide beneath your gum line. While at-home brushing and flossing and routine professional cleanings are important, these efforts only address plaque and tartar on the exposed surfaces of your teeth and along your gum line. Scaling and root planing, more commonly known as a dental deep cleaning, goes further.

This procedure will allow your Pinnacle Dental Group team to clean the roots of your teeth and remove decay-causing particles from under your gums. A deep cleaning is an effect, non-surgical method of preventing periodontitis and even treating early gingivitis or gum infection. Remember, your gums are just as important as your teeth.

If you’ve noticed your gums are receding, bleeding, or sore, you may be in need of a professional deep cleaning. Don’t hesitate to call us at (425) 355-0600 today to schedule.
