Tartar Cleaning

Tartar Cleaning

Scaling is the process of removing tartar that accumulates in the mouth due to inadequate oral hygiene.

Scaling is an important procedure to remove plaque that accumulates and hardens on the teeth. This cleaning helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath, as well as improve the health of the teeth and gums. During a cleaning, the dentist or dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar.
Scaling is important in preventing oral health problems such as periodontal disease and improving overall oral health. Professional dental care requires regular visits to the dentist and maintaining good oral hygiene practices, which in the long run maintain and improve the health of teeth and gums.

What are the Damages of Dental Calculus?

  • Tartar occurs at the junction of the tooth and gum. This causes inflammation of the gums in the area where the calculus is located.
  • Causes gum disease and gum recession
  • Causes bleeding in the gums in the area where they are located
  • Dental calculus, if not cleaned, causes the jawbone where the teeth are located to melt over time, leading to tooth loss.
  • Causes bad breath due to poor oral hygiene
  • May cause tooth decay
  • Since tartar forms a rough and sticky surface, it causes discoloration more easily in the area where it is located.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers :

Removing tartar requires professional dental cleanings, but you can take steps to reduce tartar formation. Brushing twice daily, flossing, adding antiseptic mouthwash and avoiding sugary and starchy foods can help prevent tartar buildup. It is also important to have regular dental check-ups and cleanings every six months.

Dental calculus forms as a result of the build-up of mineralized plaque on the teeth. Bacteria, food particles and interaction with saliva form plaque, a sticky coating that adheres to the teeth. If plaque is not brushed and flossed regularly, it can harden over time and become tartar.

Scaling requires professional dental intervention. Regular dental cleanings by a dentist or dental hygienist are essential to effectively remove tartar. During dental cleaning, specialized instruments and ultrasonic devices are used to scrape and remove tartar from the tooth surfaces and below the gum line.

Tartar itself usually does not cause obvious symptoms. However, the presence of calculus can lead to a variety of oral health problems, including halitosis (bad breath), yellow or brown stains on the teeth, a rough or grainy texture on the tooth surface, gingivitis, swollen or bleeding gums, receding gums, tooth sensitivity and, in advanced cases, gum disease or periodontitis.
