Routine Cleaning (Prophy)
Routine cleanings involve above the gum line cleaning to remove light to moderate plaque and tartar.
Scaling / Debridement
Scaling involves above the gum line cleaning to remove moderate generalized tartar build-up. This can also be done prior to scaling and root planing.
Deep Cleaning (SRP)
Deep cleanings, or scaling and root planing (SRP), involves non-surgical subgingival cleaning performed by your dental hygienist. A special ultrasonic device is used to remove heavy deposits under the gums. Then plaque and tartar are removed and the root surfaces are smoothed.
This process helps keep the area free of bacteria and may help ligaments to re-attach, reducing pocket depth that could lead to periodontal disease.
