A deep cleaning will remove harmful bacteria and prevent permanent damage to your smile. Without this treatment, microbes will continue to multiply. The pockets around your tooth roots will grow larger, and your gums will start to pull away. In response, you could experience widespread tooth loss, as well as considerable discomfort.

With his experience and advanced technology, Dr. Hacker can typically complete scaling and root planing in only one or two appointments.

Scaling and root planing can also protect your overall physical health. Gum disease has been linked to an increased risk for heart attack, stroke, and other serious conditions. The bacteria that causes inflammation in your gums can also lead to inflammation in your blood vessels. Fortunately, by removing the oral bacteria, scaling and root planing can protect your heart health. Because of its widespread and vital benefits, Dr. Hacker classifies deep cleanings as preventive treatments.
