Plaque and Tartar accumulate in your teeth and gum linewill not be cleaned by normal brushing or flossing. The dentist uses ultrasonic devices to remove these deposits
Plaque is the sticky layer which constantly forms on your teeth. The plaque should be cleaned daily with Flossing and Brushing. When this plaque sits for a long time on your teeth without being washed away it forms a layer called tartar. Once it forms you cannot clean it with regular brushing. Professional Scaling is only the rescue at this stage.Ultrasonic scalers are widely used in the scaling procedure. The tip of the ultrasonic scalervibrates at a very fast rate and removes the tartar and stains from the outer surface of the tooth.
