Scaling and Root Planing
Along with maintaining good dental health habits throughout the year, it is also important to have your teeth cleaned professionally on a regular basis. During these standard cleanings, your dentist will check your teeth, cheeks, gums, and tongue and jawbone to see if there are any signs of decay or damage.
Deep teeth cleaning (also referred to as scaling and root planning) is a process that occurs when your dentist performs these standard procedures and determines that they must perform cleaning interventions that extend beyond just your crowns. If your dentist has scheduled a deep teeth cleaning procedure, that means they will need to go below your gum line in order to remove debris and bacteria as well as tartar and plague that has collected there. Performing this intervention will allow your gums to begin to heal. If your gums bleed or you have bad breath you may be a candidate for deep cleaning. Also know that this often takes 2 appointments, not one.
Nearly all patients are candidates for deep teeth cleaning. At Cherrywood Dental Care, there is nothing we love more than watching our patients discover a brilliant new smile.

Like most dental procedures, what is covered by your insurance depends on your individual insurance plan. Still, most insurance plans cover deep teeth cleaning procedures. Keep in mind that your insurance plan may not cover 100% of the costs, so be prepared to pay some of the costs out of pocket. If you do not currently have dental coverage or would like to discuss payment options, please contact our staff to see what
opportunities may be available.
