Scaling with root planing is termed as deep cleaning. Scaling involves removal of plaque and tartar upto gumline, while root planing is cleaning below gumline using specific dental instruments in order to clean and prevent any bacterial accumulation which otherwise may collect and cause serious gum problems.
Regular cleaning involves removal of plaque and tartar, but it only targets the surfaces of the tooth above the gumline. Deep cleaning on the other hand targets the surfaces at and below gumline, which if not cleaned may give rise to various gum diseases. Deep cleaning prevents the progression of gum diseases and prevents gum inflammation.
Bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, loose teeth, red and swollen gums, or pus around teeth and gums are some of the symptoms indicative of gum disease. Most of these signs are painless and may often go unnoticed which may aggravate the gum disease and can lead to early teeth loss.
