You've probably experienced a dental exam where the dentist spends time scraping away at your teeth.
It's called dental scaling and root planing, and it's necessary for most patients to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
In the past, scaling was done by hand -- and it's still a common procedure in dentistry today.
Performed with a metal instrument known as a scaler, your dentist scrapes your teeth and under your gums to remove what your toothbrush might have missed.
