One of the best ways to prevent periodontal disease is with biannual dental cleanings. However, if a patient neglects to follow this recommendation, a standard cleaning (i.e., a traditional cleaning) to remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth may be unable to fully address the issues a patient is experiencing: In a case such as this, a Deep Cleaning is required.
There are several terms used to refer to the traditional Deep Cleaning procedure, including Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing (SRP), Periodontal Therapy, Gum Scaling and Root Planing or Gum Therapy.
Dental checkups offer a multitude of benefits that extend beyond just maintaining an attractive smile. They play a critical role in overall health, helping detect potential issues early, reducing the risk of tooth loss, and even aiding in the prevention of conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
Regular checkups also include professional cleanings that remove stubborn plaque and tartar, substances that brushing and flossing alone can’t eliminate. By scheduling routine visits to HKS Dental of Chula Vista, you’re investing not only in your oral health but your overall wellbeing.
The Deep Cleaning process is similar to the process performed during a traditional biannual cleaning except, rather than just focusing on the sides, front, and back surfaces of the teeth that are located above the gum line.
The Periodontal Scaling and Root planning procedure includes removing tartar and debris from between the teeth and the gingival tissue as well as from the pockets that have formed between the gums and roots of the teeth.

Who Should Consider Having a Deep Dental Cleaning?
Individuals who notice they have signs indicating that their gingival tissue may be infected should schedule an appointment with Dr. Sadat for an exam. During this exam, Dr. Sadat evaluates the patient’s teeth to determine if a Deep Cleaning is warranted.
The dental exam performed during the initial consultation may also include measuring of the pocket depths, which is usually a painless process, and X-rays.
