Things you may want to know about Ultrasonic Scaling

What is Ultrasonic Scaling?

Scaling is the thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums by an ultrasonic machine which vibrates at ultrasonic speed and all the calculus/plaque that is attached to the teeth falls off.

Who needs an Ultrasonic scaling?

Generally it is recommended to get one done every six months.

But if you have gum bleeding, bad breath, or dirty looking teeth you should get one as soon as possible.

Common myths associated with ultrasonic scaling debunked..

Q. Will my teeth get weak after scaling?

A. No. The reason this myth is popular is because people with extremely poor oral hygiene have massive amounts of calcified plaque which subsequently causes recession of the gums leading to mobile teeth. During scaling this calculus is removed revealing the underlying mobile teeth which were held firm due to the deposited calculus.

Q. Will scaling hurt?

A. If it is a routine scaling, it will not cause pain but there will be a slight sensation when the scaling is done as the teeth and gums are sensitive to touch. 

We use anesthetic spray so that you don't feel anything during the procedure.
