What Is a Deep Dental Cleaning?
A deep dental cleaning is a gum disease treatment in Cerritos that’s also known as scaling and root planing, SRP for short. Deep cleanings are one of the best ways to treat early to moderate periodontal disease. We can even treat somewhat severe cases of gum disease with a deep cleaning, though other gum disease treatments might need to be performed in conjunction.
The main cause of gum disease is tartar (also called calculus) and plaque build-up, which can lead to a bacterial infection in the gums. A deep dental cleaning is designed to remove the hard-to-reach plaque/tartar, especially when it is found deep below the gum line at the base of the gingival pockets.
