Damages Caused By Tartar

Plaque is a soft, sticky substance from the food and drinks we take. They contain millions of bacteria and rapidly accumulate in the mouth and stick on the teeth.

A good brush can remove most of the plaque in the mouth. However, poor dental hygiene can cause plaque to thrive until they develop into tartar or calculus. Once plaque becomes tartar or calculus, no amount of brush, floss, or rinse can remove. Only a dental cleaning can remove them.

Further neglect can cause havoc to your oral health. Tartar will prey on your teeth and develop:

  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Bad breath
  • Dental abscess
  • Receding gums
  • Gingivitis
  • Periodontal disease

Dental Scale And Clean Benefits

Dental scale and clean, as with all preventive dentistry options, provides the following benefits to your oral health:

  • Stops dental issues from developing and progressing.
  • Treats bad breath.
  • Keeps teeth healthy and strong.
  • Whiter and brighter smile.
  • Boosts confidence.

The Dental Scale And Clean Process

The process here involves removing plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth and the areas between the teeth and gums. A specialised scaling maneuver or manual scaling tools are used in the process.

After tartar is removed and the teeth are cleaned, your dentist will smooth the teeth’s surface. This is called root planing. Bacteria cannot stick to teeth with smoother surfaces. This process is usually done to those with an early stage of gum disease and whose gums have started to recede. With the teeth’s surfaces smoothened, the gums can reattach themselves.

The scale and clean procedure requires at least two appointments to your dentist. Follow-up visits may be required to check if your teeth and gums have improved.

The candidates who go for deep cleaning are the ones who have issues with plaque and tartar build-up in different areas of their mouth, which have gone untreated for a long time. We recommend this treatment during routine visits when excessive tartar and plaque are noticeable.
