3 Simple steps involved in Scaling and cleaning procedure
Crack: Our dentists use an electric scaler to crack the toughest calculus (plaque built over time) and remove it. Together, the electric scaler and jet spray of water soften the calculus and clean away the debris lodged between the teeth.
Clean: We then use a manual scaler to clean the plaque situated in awkward positions between the teeth.
Polish: Scrubbing and polishing your teeth is the last step towards this procedure. This step protects your teeth from further decay.
How often do I need a scale and clean? It depends on:
- How thoroughly you brush and floss each day.
- How fast you teeth tend to accumulate calculus.
- Your food and drink habits.
