Teeth scaling is done by removing hardened plaque and tartar below and above the gumline. Our dentist cleans all the way to the bottom of the pocket, finishing the process off with root planing and smoothing out the teeth roots to ensure the gums are reattached to the teeth.
What are the benefits of teeth scaling?
The procedure helps prevent tooth loss and gum diseases. It also protects the roots of your teeth and minimizes any problems with periodontal pockets or the spaces around the teeth and below the gumline.
