Top 5 guiding points for Teeth Scaling


What is Plaque?

Plaque is a soft, sticky film that forms on your teeth. The bacteria in the plaque feeds off sugars in food and drink that we take and produce acids that dissolve and break down the enamel of the teeth. When you don't clean your teeth properly, the plaque eventually hardens into calculus which makes it even more difficult to clean your teeth.

Why do I need to get my teeth cleaned?

There are hard-to-reach areas that we can't clean thoroughly when we brush our teeth. Once plaque up and hardens into calculus (tartar), brushing alone can't remove it. Dentists use special instruments to meticulously remove the hard deposits of calculus on your teeth.

How often should I undergo teeth cleaning?

It is recommended that you get dental cleaning every six months. Patients who are highly prone to periodontal disease may be advised to see their dentist more frequently.

Do Scaling weaken your teeth?

Scaling do not cause any harm to your teeth. You may have slight sensitivity after the procedure, it is because earlier you were carrying chunks of calculus over your teeth and after it is removed your teeth is exposed to the oral fluids again.

Do Teeth Scaling cure bleeding Gums?

In the very first stages of gum disease, you may notice a little inflammation and bleeding gums, and maybe a foul taste in your mouth. This stage is called gingivitis. It's typically painless, but it's the first step toward a serious infection, and it's the only stage of gum disease that is reversible. If you notice swollen, tender or puffy gums, or that your gums bleed when you brush or floss, visit your dentist for a screening.
