Supragingival scaling is the removal of hard dental deposits (tartar) that accumulate on the surface of the crown of the teeth, with the use of ultrasonic devices called scalers. The latest generation scalers used in our Clinic enable fast and effective cleaning of the tooth surface and are completely safe for the patient. The procedure is carried out in a water environment to protect dental tissues from damage.
In case of tartar deposits located below the gumline, subgingival scaling is applied.Scaling is usually a painless procedure. However, pain may occur in case of an inflammation of tissues surrounding the tooth. In such cases, local anaesthetic is applied.
Each scaling procedure is completed with the polishing of all tooth surfaces, which prevents further build-up of dental plaque and gives the patient a pleasant sensation of smooth teeth.After professional teeth cleaning fluoride varnish is recommended in order to:
- protect teeth against dental caries;
- prevent teeth hypersensitivity of the necks of the teeth.
