Scaling and Root Planing Removes Tartar Build-up and Plaque

Deep Dental Cleaning in Evanston, IL, With Stephens Dentistry

Do you feel like your teeth aren’t as healthy and white as they should be? Has it been a while since you’ve had a deep cleaning?

At Stephens Dentistry in Evanston, IL, we believe everyone deserves a bright and beautiful smile. That’s why we offer deep dental cleanings with scaling and root planing to remove tartar build-up and plaque below the gumline.

You may have heard of traditional ‘scaling and polishing.’ However, deep cleaning with scaling and root planing goes beyond just removing surface stains.

This intensive process deeply cleans beneath the gumline where standard cleanings cannot reach. Thus, providing a safe way to clean away years of hardened plaque and tartar build-up.

The Scaling and Root Planing Process

We use modern equipment and technology at Stephens Dentistry to provide fast and effective scaling and root planing. First, our experienced dentists will examine the patient’s teeth for signs of tartar build-up or other issues that may need addressing. Once we have identified any problem areas, we will begin cleaning.

Deep dental cleaning is a two-part process that includes the following:


First, our dentist will use an ultrasonic scaler and hand tools to remove any visible tartar from above and below the gum line. This step is crucial because it breaks up the stubborn build-up that accumulates over time and can cause serious oral health problems if left untreated.

Root Planing

The second step is root planing. During this process, our dentist will use hand tools to gently smooth and clean the roots of your teeth. This process helps prevent bacteria from gathering in the pockets between the gums and teeth, making it easier for the gums to reattach to the teeth and preventing further damage.

Benefits of Deep Dental Cleanings

Deep dental cleanings with scaling and root planing provide many benefits for oral health. The benefits include:

  • Removes harmful bacteria from your mouth
  • Helps prevent periodontal disease
  • Reduces your risk for tooth decay
  • Removes stubborn stains that you cannot remove with regular brushing and flossing
  • Restores your oral health
  • Gives you a beautiful smile
  • Gives you fresh breath

Whether you want to combat gum disease or maintain oral health, deep dental cleanings with scaling and root planing can help.
