  • Yes deep dental cleaning can be done in ¼ section at one time. Deep cleaning is fusion of dental cleaning and root planning and removes the plaque and calculus deposits which are present on the tooth structure. To treat periodontal problems, deep cleaning is required and can be done with hand instruments and or ultrasonic scalers. If much of deposits are present on teeth, then procedure is done in multiple sittings. Before performing the procedure, they will numb the surrounding tissues to avoid any pain. After scaling and root planing, a follow up appointment is scheduled after few weeks to see the improvement in condition of gums. You can discuss with your dentist or periodontist to know if you can get deep cleaning done in multiple visits. For more info on deep cleaning, refer to…
