My gums looks nice, feels nice then why scaling? My teeth will become lose post scaling! Dentist recommends getting your teeth cleaned professionally every six months. However, the fact that this means having to visit your dentist and paying them for the service often makes some people skeptical thinking that it’s just a tactic by the dentist so that people keep spending money. No matter how diligent you are at taking care of your teeth at home, harmful bacteria grow in your mouth that can only be removed by dental professional. These bacteria can cause gum diseases and significantly affect your oral health. Teeth cleaning (prophylaxis/scaling) is a procedure for the removal of dental calculus (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing specially in the areas that are difficult to reach in routine tooth brushing.
The Myth that stops you from scaling-“Teeth will become lose after scaling!” but that’s not true. When tartar accumulates around your teeth over time, it causes gum disease which causes bone loss and tooth weakening. However, because the tartar is so tightly adhered around your teeth, they feel firm. When the tartar is removed (cause for gum disease) you feel the something is missing around your teeth but that’s exactly how your oral cavity should be, completely free of tartar and the mobility is just an illusion which fades away with time.
So, my friends now you want to believe the rumors or would you like to value your smile. Think about it!!
