Forwarding vs control plane in SDN

I know SDN separates the forwarding and the control plane. The control plane being the one that makes the decision on how data flows. Does this mean that for example a switch will communicate with the control plane after the arrival of every packet? I assume not, but could you please elaborate on this.
