Why do we need scaling regularly?

Even though we brush our teeth and use dental floss every day, it is still difficult to remove all dental plaque. Tartar, which forms when dental plaque accumulates, could result in periodontal disease. During the process of scaling, the dentist makes use of the ultra sound to help patient remove tooth stain, dental plaque and tartar. Meanwhile, the dentist will also perform an oral examination to find out if there are other issues.
