Laser Dentistry FAQ
We often encounter a whitish soft, sticky substance on the surface of our teeth, which predominantly is seen along the gum line. This soft, sticky substance is called plaque. Plaque accumulates on our teeth because of sticky food substances
which adhere to the surface of the teeth and are very difficult to remove by brushing. However vigilant you are with brushing, some amount of plaque always sticks to the teeth. Plaque harbors the oral bacterial colonies which inflame the
gums. Inflamed gums bleed on the slightest provocation, even on brushing. And this form of gum disease is called ‘gingivitis.’ Also, this soft plaque, over time, Before After gets converted into a hardened structure called calculus, more commonly known as tartar. Tartar, being even more difficult to remove by tooth brushing, remains stuck
to the teeth and causes gum disease called ‘periodontitis’ which leads to bone loss from around the teeth and hence the problem of loose teeth. So, you need to get a dental cleaning to get rid of plaque and tartar for healthy gums.
Professional dental cleaning involves two procedures, namely dental scaling and
polishing. Dental scaling removes the tartar using ultrasonic instruments and
polishing usually follows to smoothen out the rough tooth surface caused by the
procedure of scaling.
Sometimes, tartar extends onto the tooth root surface, causing detachment of gums
from the tooth. The process of removal of tartar from the root surface is called root
planing. Not all people require root planing.
You cannot remove all the plaque from your teeth. So, if you are very diligent in
your oral hygiene measures, you may need dental cleaning less often, but you will
need it still. If you ignore your gum problems for long, the tartar will first detach
the gums from your teeth, and the bone support around the teeth will also reduce
with time. Without the support of the bone and gums, your teeth will become loose
and painful. If ignored further, tooth loss will occur.
It’s a common misconception among people, which is a complete myth. Dental
scaling never harms your tooth in any way.
Another common myth that prevents people from going for the procedure.
Sometimes, when you have got excessive tartar, scaling may cause slight looseness
in the initial days after scaling but only to improve the health of your gums
It is done with the help of ultrasonic instruments which have also got a water spray
fitted to them. You will be told to lie down on the dental chair, and the instrument
is used to clean your teeth. An oral suction regularly removes the water
accumulated by the water spray. After the scaling is done, a toothpaste like
substance is used to polish your teeth. The whole procedure takes hardly 15-20
minutes but may be more depending on the severity of the gum disease.
Scaling is not painful at all though you may experience minor bleeding from gums.
However, root planning may need anesthesia if you feel extreme discomfort during
If you have got excellent oral hygiene, you may need it once in 6 months.
However, if you have compromised oral health, your dentist may recommend it
once every three months or even more frequently. Talk to your dentist about it.
The cost will vary depending upon the severity of the gum disease. However, it
may range anywhere from………………………
