Can we just deep clean one side teeth?
Can we get deep cleaning on only one side of the mouth and get normal cleaning the other side? My dentist said I have pockets of 4mm on second last molar. Suggested to do deep cleaning on both sides.   Other teeth probe length are around 2mm. Do we need to deep cleaning on teeth which has 2mm pockets too?

Hello It is not necessary to get deep scaling done on both sides. You can get it done on the side having deep pockets.
