For the best health possible, our Sandor Family Dentistry dental team encourages you to stay away from the harmful and damaging products available.
Dental scalers that you can purchase at the store are not safe for your smile, which is why it’s best to avoid using them. Many people are misled and they use this instrument to remove the plaque and tartar from their teeth, but oftentimes they harm and damage their gums and teeth, leading to tooth chips, tooth sensitivity, and receded and infected gums. It can also lead to gum disease because the tartar is frequently pushed below the gumline when using this product. The only people who should use a scaler to clean your teeth are Dr. Sandor and his dental team.
Lastly, you should avoid using products that don’t have the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. The ADA tests oral hygiene products for their safety and effectiveness in an oral hygiene routine. If the product passed the test, it receives the right to print the ADA seal of approval on the label. If you use smile-cleaning tools that do not have this stamp of approval, you could be putting your teeth and gums in danger.
