Scrapping of teeth

Consists in scraping the surface of the teeth that are located more internally and that are covered by the gum in order to remove the plaque (contamination) that is deposited over time. It is usually recommended as a treatment for gingivitis, periodontitis or gum bleeding. On many occasions it eliminates bad breath.
