The importance of scaling

As you know, brush your teeth and floss at a rate of twice a day is the best way to remove plaque. However, when the plate is not fully removed, it hardens and becomes tartar. Unfortunately, only a dental professional you can be of great help once crossed this stage.

It was after the full oral examination that the hygienist performs descaling. The cleaning is done using a small metal curette provided for this purpose. Once tartar removed, the hygienist usually followed by polishing to remove visible stains on the tooth surface. To do this, a granular paste is added to the rotating electric brush. Moreover, to ensure that all inter-dental areas were well cleaned, the hygienist ended the session with flossing.

If you neglect periodic cleaning at the dentist, chronic halitosis (bad breath) awaits you and, even worse, your gums may be severely affected. Moreover, untreated gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in people over 35 years.
