Supragingival scaling Winnipeg

Supragingival scaling is a critical part of preventive dental care, focusing on the removal of dental plaque and tartar deposits that may not be effectively eliminated through regular brushing alone.

The Importance of Supragingival Scaling:

Supragingival scaling is a fundamental procedure for maintaining excellent oral hygiene and preventing more serious dental issues. Here's why it matters:

  • Plaque Removal: Despite your best efforts at home, some dental plaque can accumulate in hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. Supragingival scaling targets and removes this plaque, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
  • Tartar Elimination: Tartar, or dental calculus, is a hardened form of plaque that can't be removed by regular brushing. Our skilled Dr. Alanna Junaid uses specialized tools to gently and effectively eliminate tartar deposits.
  • Gum Health: Supragingival scaling plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy gums. Removing plaque and tartar helps prevent gingivitis and more advanced gum diseases, ensuring your gums remain pink, firm, and free from bleeding.
  • Bad Breath Prevention: Plaque and tartar buildup can contribute to bad breath. Supragingival scaling not only improves your oral health but also leaves your breath fresher.
