WHAT IS A DEEP DENTAL CLEANING?
Deep teeth cleaning, also called scaling and root planing (SRP), is one of the best ways to treat advanced gingivitis and periodontal disease. The main cause of gum disease is tartar and plaque buildup that leads to a bacterial infection in the gums. Deep dental cleaning is designed to remove that hard-to-reach plaque and tartar (aka calculus), especially when it is found at or below the gumline.
