What is the difference between a routine and deep cleaning?


A routine cleaning involves scaling above and lightly below the gum line, polishing the teeth and can be completed in one appointment. A deep cleaning or scaling and root planning (SRP) often encompasses the entire length of the tooth root below the gum line. The SRP is necessary when you have tartar build up on the roots of your teeth. This type of scaling is tedious and lengthy and usually is done in two to four appointments versus one.
