“Dental scalling will weaken my teeth”
is a claim we hear quite a bit among our patients. Some are even against tartar cleaning claiming it destroys teeth! And there are those who say, if you take down tartar it starts to accumulate even more so it is better not to remove it! is this true?!
So yeah, there are some misunderstandings on this subject and I’m here to make things clear.
First of all and before giving any explanations:
Dental scaling does not remove any layer from the tooth
And certainly does not harm your teeth!
There is no doubt about it.
On the contrary, leaving the tartar destroys the teeth, causing bone resorption and receding gums and at the end of the process tooth loss, even tooth that look completely healthy!

What is dental scalling?
How the tartar is removed and why?
Tartar (Calculus), what’s that?
It is a product of saliva secretions which contain, among other things, minerals that stick to the teeth and produce tartar, similar to how water produces tartar in a kettle.
How the tartar is removed?
With the help of an ultrasonic device that transmits waves that cause the tartar to dissolve above the tooth surface without damaging the tooth. So the claim that dental scaling can damage a tooth is incorrect, this device even if we want can not pass through the enamel layer and damage the tooth.
Why should tartar be removed?
Tartar absorbs bacteria from the oral cavity that can cause direct damage to the tooth, and also prevents us from performing good dental cleaning.
In addition, the very fact that tartar has a rough texture, it helps food debris and pests to stick to teeth and cause tooth decay! Not to forget the possible damage to the gums (receding gums) as a result of excessive tartar which accumulates and pushes the gums aside from the tooth and cause tooth mobility and even tooth lose.
Don’t take the risk!
