1. Dental scaling and polishing should be done regularly because bacteria in the oral cavity constantly forms around your teeth and gums in a film known as plaque. This layer of plaque eventually absorbs minerals in the saliva to form hardened deposits known commonly as calculus or tartar. When left untreated, the bacteria will eventually cause a host of common dental problems such as dental cavities in your teeth and gum problems.
