According to the CDC, about 90% of adults over the age of 40 have tooth decay. This is not entirely due to poor oral hygiene. It’s because you don’t pay attention to the formation of plaque and tartar on your teeth. Don’t worry! The good news is that you can be proactive in dental care.

What is teeth scaling?

Tartar is what builds up on your teeth when plaque is not removed. If plaque is left on your teeth for too long, it will harden into tartar and become much more difficult to remove. In fact, you can’t get rid of them with regular brushing and flossing. Scaling is one of the reasons why it’s so important to see the dentist every six months!

Consequences of tartar

Plaque buildup hardens into tartar, which can then cause tooth decay over time. It can cause tooth discoloration and sensitivity as well as gum recession and periodontal disease. To reduce plaque buildup and tartar build-up, make sure you brush and floss daily. Tartar harms teeth and gums. Not only is it unsightly, it also leads to tooth decay as bacteria accumulate and grow to eat away at the lining of the teeth called enamel.

Tartar is usually yellow-brown in color and forms when plaque has not been removed from the teeth for a long time. This process takes about two weeks. But some people may experience tartar buildup over a much shorter period of time.

If not treated promptly, tartar will affect your oral health. These include: bad breath, periodontitis, enamel damage, bleeding gums, toothache when eating food that is too hot or too cold, etc. Not to mention plaque and tartar also cause discomfort, making your smile stiff. Therefore, regular dental scaling at reputable dental clinics is extremely important.

Can teeth scaling be done at home?

Can I clean my teeth at home? Unlike plaque, a bacterial film is colorless. Tartar is a mineral buildup that is quite noticeable if it is above the gum line. The most common sign of tartar is a yellow or brown color on the teeth or gums. The only way to detect tartar and remove it is to see a dentist.

Of course, the best solution to prevent tartar is to stop it before it starts. This is done by brushing your teeth twice daily. You need at least two minutes with the brush at a 45-degree angle to your teeth. Make sure to completely brush both sides of each tooth.

Bacteria thrive in foods rich in starch and sugar. Eating cakes, pastries, candy, soft drinks and other items high in sugar has a high risk of bacteria buildup. Be sure to brush your teeth after every meal and rinse with antibacterial mouthwash to clean your teeth and mouth. Drinking plenty of water can also help remove bacteria from the mouth.

Does dental floss help prevent tartar?

Flossing also goes a long way in preventing the formation of tartar and plaque that lead to tooth decay. Tartar forms not only in easily accessible and visible areas of the teeth, but also in small, hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. Flossing is a tried and true method for removing plaque buildup in the gaps between teeth.

Go to the dental clinic twice a year. Regular cleanings and regular dental visits are a great aid in fighting tartar and plaque. It’s important to check for cavities and possible gum disease to detect more serious problems before it’s too late. Most dental care offices recommend scheduled cleanings every six months.

Even if you floss and brush your teeth three times a day, plaque still accumulates and can harden into tartar over time.

Experience in scaling teeth

Is the tooth scaling process painful?

Tartar removal can only be performed by a professional in a clinical setting. During the procedure, the dentist will use an ultrasonic device with a tiny nozzle to target hard-to-reach spots. This device uses ultrasound and vibrations (without damaging tooth enamel) to break up tartar.

Please refrain from removing tartar at home as this can lead to major damage to your gums. Scaling is performed with an ultrasonic device that uses ultrasound waves. The device will remove tartar from teeth or replace teeth without damaging the tooth mass. Tartar and smaller discolorations can be removed with a sandblaster. Manually operated devices can also be used to remove calculus from lower and super teeth. But such interventions occur under local anesthesia.
