Teeth scaling (commonly referred to as teeth cleaning) is a routine procedure carried out by dentists to treat gum and periodontal problems.


  • Bleeding gums
  • Swollen, red, or tender gums
  • Halitosis or bad breath
  • Shifting position of permanent teeth
  • A change in the pattern of bite

What happens during teeth scaling?

·       Teeth scaling and root planing is carried out in a single or multiple appointments depending on the severity

·       Scaling is usually carried out with an electronic scaler that has an ultrasonic vibrating tip. This process scraps the plaque and tartar (calculus) and stains from your teeth and in areas between teeth and gums. Next, the dentist will smooth the tooth roots to help your gums to reattach to the teeth.

·       You may be asked to avoid certain types of food after the procedure. Your dentist may prescribe the use of medicated mouthwash for several days to maintain oral hygiene and help you heal faster.

Benefits of teeth scaling (cleaning)?

       Prevention of dental caries(cavities)and tooth decay: Regular scaling (approximately every 6 months) will help to keep plaque and along with it decay-causing bacteria at bay

       Reduces the occurrence of gum & periodontal disease: Plaque main causative agent for gum diseases.

        Brightens smile by removing stains

       Prevent bad breath: The removal of  bacteria, plaque and calculus keeps bad breath at bay

       Thus, scaling improves gum health and prevents decay which is the leading cause of tooth loss. This increases the life of your natural teeth.
