Scaling of teeth is the most commonly advised treatment by a dentist. Scaling removes
the adherent tartar & food particles in between adjacent teeth and also between
teeth and gums. External stains on the teeth that cannot be removed by simple brushing,
can be removed by scaling and polishing.
To maintain the proper oral hygiene dentists recommend professional cleaning or
scaling of the teeth at least once in the year. We, dentists inspite of proper &
disciplined dental care, get the deposition of tartar on our teeth, which we too
get scaled once a year. Proper technique of brushing twice a day coupled with flossing
would take care of your oral hygiene.
