What is Scaling?

Many studies have demonstrated a possible link between periodontal health and overall (systemic) health. Taking care of your teeth can have a positive impact on your overall wellness .

To clean the dental plaque as well as the build up of tartar above and below your gum line, a non-surgical technique called scaling is performed. It’s typically a procedure in which small dental instruments are used to physically remove deposits from the surfaces of teeth. At one time, scaling was performed entirely with manual tools, but now is done with an ultrasonic scaler.
