Scaling (Dental Cleans)

Scaling is non-surgical periodontal therapy which is the process of removing or eliminating the etiologic agents.

Why dental scaling?

While you may very diligent in your oral health, but brushing and flossing may not avoid building plaque and therefore tartar (calculus). There are many places between your teeth which are very hard for a tooth brush to reach. Your dental professional will use special tools to remove this tartar (calculus). Tooth decay and gum diseases begin with plaque or tartar on teeth. Tartar or plaque can cause gingivitis (gum inflammation). This can lead to periodontitis and hence tooth fall.
