 IS SCALING HARMFUL TO MY TEETH???

Scaling is a common dental procedure performed for patients with excess plaque build up and gum diseases. It is a cleaning that reaches below the gum-line to remove the excess plaque buildup.

Scaling and root planing  commonly known as"Deep cleaning" involves removal of plaque and calculus(hard deposits) and then smoothing the root surfaces which removes the bacteria and other micro-organisms(causes of gum inflammation).


WHAT IS PLAQUE???

Plaque is a soft grayish substance that adheres to the tooth which is mainly composed of bacteria. Everyone has the tendency to develop plaque but through regular brushing and flossing organised colonies of bacteria are disturbed and eliminated from oral cavity.

WHAT HAPPENS IF PLAQUE IS NOT REMOVED???

If plaque remains undisturbed by brushing or flossing for 24 hours bacterial bio-film absorbs the mineral contents of saliva. As a result of this soft, easily removable bio film is converted into hard substance called as "Calculus". Calculus cannot be removed by brushing and flossing. It can be removed only by scaling.

CONSEQUENCES OF PLAQUE ACCUMULATION:

                              PLAQUE ACCUMULATION
                                                    ⇩
                                          GINGIVITIS
                        (swelling, redness and bleeding gums)
                                                    ⇩
                     PERIODONTAL POCKET FORMATION  
                 (formation of gap between the gum and tooth)
                                                    ⇩
                      LOSS OF GINGIVAL ATTACHMENT
                                                    ⇩
                                      PERIODONTITIS
                                 (soft tissue and bone loss)
                                                    ⇩
               LOOSENING OF TOOTH & LOSS OF TOOTH

So doing scaling at an early stage can prevent all these consequences. It's our choice to save or lose the tooth.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING SCALING????

We use ultra-sonic instrument for scaling. It consists of a vibrating metal tip combined with a cool water spray. The metal tip vibrates and chips off the calculus.                                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                      

  WILL SCALING CAUSE GAP BETWEEN MY TEETH???

     When gum disease is progressing at a moderate level the usual gap between the tooth are filled by plaque and calculus. After scaling when the harmful calculus are removed from the teeth you may feel like the gap is increased between the teeth.                                                            

DOES  SCALING  CAUSE SENSITIVITY???

While removing calculus from the teeth, the space filled by them is exposed to oral environment. So patient may feel mild sensitivity. Usually this sensitivity vanishes in a couple of days.
