Oral cleaning is the process of removing the plaque and tartar deposits from the teeth. It includes two procedures, namely scaling and root planing. They are performed on the tooth crowns and roots, respectively. We recommend our patients go for oral cleaning sessions at least once in six months so that the accumulated tartar deposits can be removed regularly. It can especially be of help to patients who are suffering from gum diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis.
