Scaling and Root Planing
There is a small pocket encircling each tooth between the tooth and the gums. Unfortunately, no matter how well a patient performs their at home hygiene, the toothbrush and floss can only reach about 3mm into that pocket. If the pocket is deeper than 3mm and/or there is hard tartar or “calculus” build-up on the tooth surfaces then it may be necessary to have a scaling and root planing or “deep cleaning”.
Insurances and Payment Types Accepted
At Dr. Dan and Dr. Alexis’ Office we accept most traditional Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) dental insurance plans. To verify acceptance of your specific plan, please contact our office at (661) 481-0884. Unfortunately, our office does not participate in Health Management Organizations (HMOs). As a courtesy to you, our patient, we will happily file PPO dental insurance claims for reimbursement on your behalf. We also accept payment via check, cash or credit cards and offer flexible payment plans and no interest financing through Care Credit. Additionally, many of our patients without insurance are taking advantage of our Dental Health Commitment Plan. Please feel free to contact our office for additional details. We would be thrilled to assist you!
