Scaling and sandblasting

Scaling is a procedure consisting in the removal of hard dental deposits (tartar). The tendency to the formation of tartar and the speed of its development are mostly individual characteristics but it is highly influenced by drinking lots of coffee or tea and smoking. The process of plaque deposition can be reduced by proper dental hygiene (regular brushing and flossing). Excessive accumulation of plaque can lead to periodontitis.
In our clinic we perform scaling using ultrasonic scaler. The complement of teeth scaling procedure is often their sandblasting which is removal from the tooth tartar and surface discolouration using dentistry sandblast machine.
