I recently moved overseas and I went to a new dentist for my dental cleaning, which I usually do every 6 months. She measured and assigned number for gum pockets. She said I have pockets of mostly 2-3mm, a couple 4mm and one 5mm. She asked me to come back in for a root planing.
Am I really a candidate for this procedure? It has just been 6 months since I saw my old regular dentist and he never mentioned anything about planing before. Thank you for your inputs.
