Your routine cleaning every six months at Lorton Town Dental involves scaling your teeth and gum line to remove plaque and tartar and polish to remove stains and smooth the tooth's surface. However, if you have symptoms of gum disease, you might need a different type of cleaning called scaling and root planing.
Scaling and root planing is a deep dental cleaning procedure our dentists perform to treat patients with current or developing gum disease. Not all patients need this level of cleaning, but it is key for patients concerned with gingivitis.
