Deep Cleaning is also known as Scaling and Root Planing Therapy or Periodontal Treatment.
This treatment goes deeper than a regular dental cleaning. and can help to avoid costly treatments and prevent the progress of Gingivitis and Gum disease.
During this process, the dental hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar deposits beneath the gum line.
Deep cleaning is necessary when the periodontal problem is increasing and the regular cleaning in not effective. After this procedure, the dentist will determine if the patient need a more complex treatment as periodontal surgery.
Local anesthesia is used to minimize any discomfort. In South Miami Family Dental, we like to provide the patient a painless and stress free experience.
