Teeth scaling is an essential activity to maintain good oral hygiene. It is performed by a dentist and benefits from partial reimbursement from Social Security. The rest of the price is a responsibility of your own.
What are teeth scaling?
As the name suggests, teeth scaling consists of removing the tartar that has accumulated around the tooth (crown) and at the root. This act eliminates dental plaque that forms every 7 to 12 hours through the natural process of bacterial development, especially after each meal. Bacteria in the mouth feed on the sugars in food debris. Without regular and effective tooth brushing at least twice a day, dental plaque calcifies and turns into tartar.
Teeth Scaling will not only eliminate dental plaque but also check the health of the gums (gingival inflammation or gingivitis) and check for the absence of loosening. Teeth Scaling will make the two most important daily actions for maintaining good dental hygiene more effective: brushing with a conventional brush or an electric brush with an oscillating-rotating motion, and interdental cleaning with a wire or brush.
What are the Teeth scaling Price in Pakistan?
Teeth Scaling is considered a conservative act by Social Security, in the same way as the treatment of cavities, extraction, or devitalization. Whether performed by a dentist, a stomatologist, or a periodontist, the act will be reimbursed up to 70% on the basis of the agreed rate of 150000 to 200000. If the scaling is carried out by a stomatologist, the fixed contribution applies.
Conservative care cannot be subject to any excess fees, except in the case of emergency care or exceptional circumstances. You can consult a dentist or a stomatologist without going through your general practitioner, with the exception of certain major surgical procedures.
The so-called solidarity and responsible mutuals have an obligation to reimburse the co-payment for conservative dental care. The difference between the agreed rate and reimbursement by the general scheme is therefore covered by your supplementary contract.
It is recommended that you take out a mutual insurance company that offers good dental cover in order to benefit from effective coverage of your dental expenses , in particular, if you consult a practitioner practicing in sector 2 or a periodontist whose acts, excluding scaling, do not subject to any reimbursement from Social Security.

When to do Teeth scaling?
Teeth Scaling is performed by a dentist, stomatologist, or periodontist, using a curette (manual technique) or more frequently with ultrasound for deeper scaling. For light descaling, the professional can use the laser. For people with crowns or dental implants, the dentist will favor subgingival air polishing rather than ultrasound, in order to avoid scratching the surface of the prosthesis, thus preventing bacteria from settling.
A periodontist is a qualified dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions affecting the supporting tissues of the teeth, gums, and bones (the periodontium). He can place dental implants and perform reconstructive (bone graft) or aesthetic surgery. It usually begins with scaling before treating periodontal disease.
The frequency of Teeth scaling depends on your oral health. One scaling is enough for most patients, others will need 2 to 3 annual sessions to maintain healthy gums. The first scaling can be carried out from adolescence and continue at a minimum rate of one session per year.
Do Teeth scaling whiten teeth?
Teeth scaling does not whiten the teeth, but by polishing the teeth, often done after scaling, most superficial stains or stains are removed. Thus, regular brushing and polishing at the dentist promote the “de-yellowing” of the teeth.
Do Teeth scaling hurt?
Teeth Scaling is not painful, but it can be unpleasant. People with sensitive teeth or bleeding gums (gingivitis) may experience some pain when removing subgingival calculus. However, it is possible to be anesthetized.
