Dental Restoration and Scaling--For a Better Smile

Dental health is an important part of your over all health.Whatever your age, you should have healthy teeth. Correct dental care can help you keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime.Regular tooth cleaning by the dentist is important to remove calculus or tartar that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing. Professional cleaning includes scaling and polishing. Scaling is a common non-surgical treatment for removal of infected deposits - tartar or calculus - from the tooth surface. These deposits if not removed lead to periodontal disease. In periodontal disease, the pocket between the tooth and gum begins to deepen. This provides a perfect environment for anaerobic bacteria to grow. The bacteria begin to multiply rapidly and infect more of the gum and start dissolving the bone supporting the tooth. This leaves the tooth progressively loose. The treatment now becomes more extensive and complicated in order to save the tooth.Gum surgery is required in order to make the tissues around the tooth healthy.

Scaling is the procedure that keeps your gums healthy and firm.Scaling procedure is used to remove infected deposits like plaque,calculus and stains from the tooth surfaces.These deposits, if not removed by scaling, cause infection and loosening of the gums, ultimately leading to pyorrhoea and tooth loss.Scaling is a safe and routine procedure and does not damage the tooth surface in any way. It must be done by the dental professional.Tooth scaling involves the mechanical use of a dental instrument that scrapes away bacterial plaque and calculus from the tooth. Sometimes this device may be electric, known as an ultrasonic or sonic scaler.Scaling is performed on the part of the tooth that is exposed, the crown of the tooth, as well as the portion that is normally covered by, but not attached to, the gum.

A dental filling or dental restoration is a dental restorative material used artificially to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma.Scaling is performed on the part of the tooth that is exposed, the dental crown as well as the portion that is normally covered by, but not attached to, the gum. In combination with good personal dental hygiene, scaling the tooth surface that is in this gum pocket is an effective treatment for early periodontal disease.Plaque formation on the teeth is a continuous process. If this is not removed by brushing it starts mineralizing into tartar within 10-14 hours. Such persons may require periodic scaling, every 6 months or so. The golden rule is to have a routine dental check up every 6 months.Scaling is good for your teeth, however not everybody needs to go for scaling, only people who's saliva's pH induces for calcium deposits to sit on the base of teeth, specially the back of lower front teeth.
