Thanks for your query.

Yes, definitely your teeth can be cleaned by a simple procedure called scaling. There is no chemical used here. It is just water which is released with mild pressure on to the gums, so that any deposits like (calculus & stains) can be removed. This whole procedure is called oral prophylaxis or scaling.

Every person must undergo oral prophylaxis twice in a year to have healthy teeth and gums. I would suggest you to get it done once soon.

I hope this helps.

If you have any doubts, please do let me know.

It’s good that you brush daily but it would be better if you make it twice daily, that is in night after your meals.
