Scaling is an important part of mouth hygiene. Scales may accumulate on the chewing surface of teeth. Missed or quick tooth brushing, smoking and hereditary facts contribute to the development thereof. Scales are embarrassing not only esthetically, but may cause gum decease, too. In addition healthy and inflammation-free gum is a prerequisite of making fillings and tooth replacements.
It is recommended to perform scaling twice a year to preserve healthy teeth.
