Scaling | Tartar, The Cause Of The Periodontal Disease
Tartar is both the cause of the periodontal disease, which – in our country – counts as a widespread disease, and the spawn of bacteria; tartar may cause not only a bad breath but also the loosening and loss of the otherwise healthy teeth. So, scaling is not only important from the aesthetic aspect but also for preserving your teeth. It is also important to know that tartar is not always visible.
The irritation caused by tartar, the inflammation and bleeding of the gums or the bad breath caused by the bacteria settled in the tartar will cease after the scaling treatment. You can read more about the formation and consequences of tartar at the bottom of the page.
If You have experienced any of the following symptoms, you should pay a visit to us by all means:
• bad breath
• deposits, discolouration at the root of the tooth (especially inside)
• bleeding gums (especially while cleaning the teeth)
• paradentities, inflammation of the gums, sensitive gums
• loosened teeth
• irritation caused by dental prosthesis
Get rid of the tartar and deposits in a painless manner, before they would cause more serious trouble.
Scaling | Tartar Removal Short History
The old, manual depulators, that is tartar splitting off devices meant the only solution for removing the tartar before the appearance of the ultrasonic scaling devices. Their most serious disadvantage was that they were only suitable for removing the rougher, larger pieces of tartar.
With using these devices the chances to injure the gums were high, which increased the possible formation of gum inflammation, not to mention the fact that the subsequent final polishing of the dental neck-dental root surfaces treated during scaling was not possible with these scaling devices. Consequently, the repeated deposition of tartar was faster, too. These scaling devices are not used any more, the ultrasonic scaling devices replaced them in the dental surgeries.
Ultrasonic Scaling | Tartar Removal In Practice
During the ultrasonic scaling performed in the dental surgery we scrupulously remove the tartar using ultrasound. Ultrasonic scaling can excellently be used for removing even the tiniest deposits in a manner which during scaling does not affect the dental enamel adversely, since its material is much harder than tartar. By means of fine tips of the device used for ultrasonic scaling we can even reach the deeper sections of the gingival pocket without injuring the gum even by chance.
Ultrasonic Scaling | Sensitivity After Tartar Removal
During ultrasonic scaling dental neck sensitivity, sometimes a slight pain may occur, since the scaling treatment especially concerns the areas where the tartar pressed down the gums, making the dental neck and root surfaces sensitive by this. Sensitivity after tartar removal is different for each patient. There are patients who do not feel anything, others only report on slight sensitivity or feeling cold, while there are those, who need an anaesthetic for the scaling treatment.
Scaling Treatment | Tartar Removal By A Dental Hygienist
Our assistants with a dental hygienic qualification perform the ultrasonic scaling treatments in the simple cases when scaling does not require a serious intervention by a dentist. If we perform the scaling treatment with an anaesthetic, you can rely on our professionally highly qualified dentists, so that scaling can be painless for everyone.
The advantage of the anaesthetic during the ultrasonic scaling treatment is that it is painless, however, its disadvantage is that scaling cannot be completed for all the teeth in one treatment, as all the teeth cannot be anaesthetised.
After The Ultrasonic Scaling | Salt Polishing
The finishing operation of the ultrasonic scaling treatment is the Air-Brush salt polishing, by which even the narrow distances between the teeth can be finished most finely, in addition to having a whitening effect.
Ultrasonic Scaling | Summary
During the ultrasonic scaling treatment the ultrasonic device removes the deposited plaque, discolouration and tartar from the tooth surface, while it washes and cools the teeth with water. The volume of tartar accumulation is different for each person, so the scaling treatment should be repeated at the interval recommended by our dentists. It is generally timely twice a year, which just coincides with the date of the otherwise also necessary dental control examinations.
Do not forget!
Tartar is both the cause of the periodontal disease, which counts as a widespread disease, and the spawn of bacteria; tartar may cause not only a bad breath but also the loosening and loss of the otherwise healthy teeth. So, scaling is not only important from the aesthetic aspect but also for preserving your teeth.
