Tooth Stone Cleaning
Dental and oral health is an extremely important factor for our overall health. Scaling is a critical procedure to consider in this context. Dental calculus is actually formed by the mineralisation of microbial dental plaque over time. These accumulations are particularly concentrated on the surfaces of the teeth and below the gum line. Failure to remove tartar can lead to a number of problems, including gum recession, gingivitis, bone loss and bad breath.
A high standard of oral hygiene routine can significantly limit the occurrence of such problems. Brushing three times a day, after meals, flossing and antiseptic mouthwashes can reduce plaque build-up. Flossing is particularly effective for preventing interdental caries.
However, in addition to these home cleanings, it is essential to have a professional dental scaling every 6 months. These periodic cleanings are performed by dentists and involve the mechanical removal of calculus. During this process, in addition to surface cleaning, the stones under the gum line are also removed, thus preventing gum diseases.
