The core procedures that are part of our deep cleaning in Houston, TX include scaling and root planing. For the former, your dentist will use special instruments to scrape away tartar and plaque deposits on the teeth. Scaling instruments differ in size and shape with each being used for a specific part of the mouth. The dentist will also check for any cavities, cracks or other abnormalities during a scaling procedure.
However, the difference between a routine dental cleaning and our deep cleaning in Houston, TX is that while scaling is also performed in a general cleaning, root planing is not.

The Difference Between General vs. Deep Dental Cleaning
Root planing is a part of our deep cleaning in Houston, with the goals being to expose the roots of your teeth below the gum line, remove heavy tartar buildup, and smooth the surfaces to allow the gums to attach properly. As part of a deep cleaning, it is effective in treating gum disease and alleviating gum inflammation. Your dentist may recommend it, depending on the severity of your oral health issues.
During a deep cleaning procedure, your dentist will remove scale, deposits and buildup from your teeth using either manual or ultrasonic instruments, sucking the debris away using a suction tool. Then, they polish the teeth below the gum line using a curette, ensuring smooth, bacteria-free root surfaces that do not irritate the gums. Finally, the gums are put back into place and you are given aftercare instructions to minimize complications and heal properly.
