Why do I need a deep cleaning or scraping?

When plaque builds up on the teeth and is not cleaned off, it becomes hard. If it is located below the gum line, it cannot be cleaned with normal methods. Our hygienist must get under the gums to remove all of the build-up. This is a deep cleaning. It will take more than one visit and is vital to controlling periodontal disease and saving your teeth.
