Root Planting (Deep cleaning)
Normally, it is recommended to have teeth cleaned every 6 months. As long term and huge quantity plaque accumulation will cause infectious gum and become Periodontitis disease that originate teeth loose, gum swelling and festering as well as produce bad smell. Then only scaling is not enough, so the root planting will be required. Periodontitis disease is originated from chronic infectious gum that keeps dissolving the bone supporting the tooth and makes the tooth loose. The dissolved bone cannot be restored even though the root planting treatment is done. The treatment only helps to stop the infection so it is good to have teeth regularly cleaned to avoid the periodontitis disease.
