Oral Prophylaxis (Scaling)
Sometimes regular brushing and using dental floss will not always assist you in getting rid of deposits on teeth. Occasionally you might need professional dental cleaning to remove such unseen and unwanted deposits. These deposits that are not removed are usually the culprits for bad breath, bleeding or receding gums or tooth decay. By oral prophylaxis, a professional dentist can effortlessly take out the hard as well as soft deposits that are there on the tooth and root surface. Overriding the usual misconception undergoing scaling only makes the tooth stronger and healthier. Moreover, it can improve and maintain oral health and can also make teeth look clean and healthy. It is advisable to get a scaling done twice a year or al least once a year.
