Therefore, choosing a dentist with high knowledge, experience and diagnostic abilities is extremely important.

Scaling and correction of root surface in Iran is done by dentists and specialists educated in the best universities of the country and the world, as well as with a high scientific level. However, the cost of this treatment is much lower than in other countries. The cost of scaling and root surface correction in Iran depends on several factors. These factors include the following:

  • The amount of plaque on the teeth.  In some cases, the amount of plaque is so high and deep that scaling alone is not responsible for removing it, and surgery must be performed afterwards to remove plaque from the tooth surfaces.
  • The dentist’s expertise and the credibility of the medical center you visit.

dental scaling applications

A substance called plaque is always forming on the surface of the teeth. Dental plaque is a thin layer of nutrients and salts in saliva that sticks to teeth and contains millions of bacteria. Plaque should be removed from the tooth surface daily with a toothbrush and floss. If plaque is not removed from the tooth, the salts will gradually deposit in them and become a plaque. The more time passes, the more plaque is accumulated on the previous plaques. As the plaque progresses, the gingival attachment to the tooth gradually disappears and the plaque reaches the lower areas of the tooth and even the root surface.

These plaques are also a good place for bacteria to grow. Bacteria can enter the roots through the plaques and rot them. The plaque is also the cause of many gum diseases.

Therefore, the accumulation of plaque causes periodontal disease. These plaques should be removed from the tooth surface so as not to cause further damage to the gums and teeth. For this purpose, scaling and polishing of teeth and leveling the root surface are performed. It should be noted that dental scaling is not possible at home and must be done in a dental office.

Hand Scaling
In this method, the dentist removes the plaque from your teeth with manual tools. This method is a bit more time consuming.

Ultrasonic Scaling
In ultrasonic scaling, the dentist uses an ultrasonic device to remove the plaque from the tooth surface. These devices use special vibrations along with water to remove the plaques.

If some plaque remains on the teeth during scaling, it will interfere with the healing process of gingival and will lead to periodontal disease. In addition, the plaques themselves will be a place for plaque re-formation and bacterial growth. That is why the complete elimination of plaques is very important. Tooth scaling in Iran is done with great care, so that all plaque is removed from the tooth surface. In addition, the cost of receiving this treatment in Iran is much lower than in other countries. These have led many to choose Iran as a cost-effective destination for dental treatment, scaling and root leveling.

Who Is It Not For?

  • The use of ultrasonic scaling devices is not suitable for people who have a pacemaker in their heart.
  • There is no need for scaling if your teeth do not have plaque. In some cases, black or brown spots form on the dorsal surface of the teeth. It should be noted that in many cases these are not plaques and are just pigments that stick to the surface of the teeth after eating.

Pretreatment Preparations

  • In the first session, the dentist will examine your mouth, gums and teeth. In this session, he will present the appropriate treatment plan for your teeth.
  • You may need to have an x-ray of your teeth for further examination.
  • If you have any illness, allergies and hospitalization history, or are pregnant or take certain medications be sure to inform your dentist.

How Dental Scaling And Root Planing Is Performed in Iran

how dental scaling is done
  • In most cases, scaling and planing the root surface is a painless process. So there is no need for anesthesia. But in some cases, your teeth may need to be anesthetized first. In these cases, the dentist injects anesthesia into your mouth.
  • In the next step, the dentist begins to remove the plaque. This step is done by dragging the scaling tool (manual or ultrasonic) on the plaque.
  • In the root planing, in addition to removing the plaque on the root surface, the dentist also removes some of the root surface to make its surface smooth and polished.
  • The dentist will then brush your teeth. Brushing the teeth is done using a small brush that has a rotating shape. Tooth brushing removes plaque and pigments left on the surface of the teeth.
  • Scaling and root planing may be performed several times at different intervals at the dentist’s discretion.

Is Dental Scaling and Root Planing Painful?

Does dental scaling hurt

The answer to this question is that scaling teeth is usually painless. However, in some cases, such as the patient’s own sensitivity or the development of plaque under the gums, the person may experience some pain during the scaling process. In these cases, the dentist may use local anesthesia at his or her discretion before scaling begins.


  • Oral hygiene is very important to prevent the accumulation of plaque and improve gum health. Your dentist will teach you how to brush and floss properly.
  • For some time after scaling and leveling the root surface, teeth are sensitive to heat, cold and natural sweeteners. In these cases, your dentist may prescribe anti-allergic toothpaste to reduce the sensitivity of your teeth.
  • If your gums are inflamed before scaling, the inflammation decreases after the scaling process and leveling of the root surface.
  • If the plaque progresses too far, the attachment of the tooth to the surrounding tissues will be largely lost. Therefore, the patient may feel looseness in their teeth after scaling. It is worth noting that this looseness is related to your own teeth and scaling has no effect on its formation.
  • You should see your dentist a few weeks after treatment to check the condition of the tissues around your teeth and gums. In this session, the dentist will basically examine the tissue of your mouth, teeth and gums. Scaling your teeth may need to be done again. Periodontal surgery may be needed to improve the condition of the gums if the gums and gum disease are very advanced. Also in this session, the next date will be set for your visit to the dentist.
