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:
Take a look at the charts below to compare dental planing and root scaling prices in Iran with the rest of the world.
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.
In this method, the dentist removes the plaque from your teeth with manual tools. This method is a bit more time consuming.
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.
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.
