Tartar Removal


Bacterial plaque accumulated on the teeth, as a result of not being cleaned with regular brushing, hardens on the surface of the tooth and turns into dental calculus. We call the process of cleaning the formed dental calculus by dentists with special hand tools or ultrasonic scrapers as detertraj. Stones accumulated on the tooth surface cause swelling, redness and bleeding in the gums. When you do not have this condition treated in time, it causes a series of problems up to recession of the gums and loss of the jaw bone.


 Detertraj removes tartar and stains and protects the health of the teeth, gums and surrounding tissues. We generally recommend the detertraj procedure to be performed every 6 months. With regular detertraj procedure, problems such as gingivitis, bleeding, bad breath are prevented, tooth decay and advanced periodontal diseases that will lead to tooth loss are prevented. We make the teeth look brighter, whiter and smoother. In particular, we increase oral hygiene and increase brushing efficiency.

Why does tartar form?

There are many reasons for calculus formation. Saliva structure, especially in areas where saliva is dense, can predispose to the formation of dental calculus. Inadequate or no tooth brushing, lack of attention to oral health, food residues accumulated between teeth, personal factors, lack of dental flossing, excessive consumption of sugary and carbohydrate foods, and the use of harmful tobacco products are also among the factors affecting the formation of dental calculus. For these reasons, it should be remembered that regular dental care and attention to oral health are important in preventing tartar formation.

How to Clean Tartar?

Although tartar cleaning may seem like a simple procedure, it should definitely be performed by specialists. If there is any sensitivity in the teeth, local anaesthesia is applied in the first stage. In this way, no pain or pain does not occur. However, if there is no sensitivity in the teeth, anaesthesia is not required because the procedure is painless. Then, the tartar accumulated on the teeth is cleaned with the help of special tools or ultrasonic devices.

How Long Does Tartar Cleaning Take?

The scaling procedure usually takes 30-45 minutes; however, this time may vary depending on the density of the calculus. Patients with a higher density of calculus may require an additional second session. After the cleaning process, it is important to brush the teeth twice a day and regularly clean the interface with an interface brush or dental floss to prevent the re-formation of tartar. These precautions are effective steps to protect oral health and minimise tartar formation.

The detergency procedure removes tartar and stains while maintaining the health of the teeth, gums and surrounding tissues. This important procedure is generally recommended to be performed every 6 months. Regular detertraj prevents problems such as gingivitis, bleeding and bad breath. It also plays an important role in preventing advanced periodontal diseases, tooth decay and tooth loss.


Scaling makes teeth look brighter, whiter and smoother. Tartar cleaning improves oral hygiene and increases the effectiveness of tooth brushing. In this way, it is possible to protect dental health, prevent possible problems and achieve an aesthetically more beautiful smile.

How often should tartar cleaning be done?

There are some factors that those who have dental stone cleaning should pay attention to after the application. If anesthesia is applied, nothing should be consumed until the numbness subsides after the procedure. Scaling may cause sensitivity in teeth over a period of time. Therefore, acidic foods and drinks such as oranges and soda should be avoided. At the same time, hard and difficult to chew foods such as hazelnuts and peanuts should be avoided for a while.

If your dentist has prescribed any medication after the procedure, you should be careful to use this medication in the manner and dosage recommended by the doctor. If antibiotics are used, they should be used regularly until they are finished.

In the first 24 hours after the procedure, the teeth should be rinsed with salt water 4-5 times. This can speed up healing as well as reduce the risk of infection. Cold foods and drinks should be avoided for the first week.

If anesthesia is not performed, nothing should be eaten or drunk for 2 hours after the procedure. Hot and cold food/drinks should be avoided in the first 24 hours.

It is normal for gums to leak after scaling and hot and cold sensitivity that may last for a few days, so there is no need to worry. If swelling occurs, you can apply an ice pack externally to your gums (cheek) to relieve the swelling.

If you feel any pain, you can use painkillers. However, pain usually does not occur. Continuing to brush and floss after the procedure is important for the success of the treatment. Cavities formed after dental scaling are normal and do not cause concern.

What Should Be Considered After Tartar Cleaning?

There are many effective methods to prevent tartar formation. Habits such as regular tooth brushing, dental check-ups, dental floss and interface brush use protect oral health by preventing tartar formation.


One of the effective ways to prevent tartar formation is to visit the dentist every 6 months. Thanks to these controls, the presence of dental calculus is checked and early intervention is provided. In addition to regular oral care habits, it is important not to neglect regular doctor check-ups to minimise tartar formation and contribute to long-term oral health.
