NEW ORAL HYGIENE DEVICE For many years, dentists and hygienists frequently use metal Dental Scalers to thoroughly clean or remove plaque, calculus and other debris from teeth and in particular, the inter-proximal spaces between teeth. Metal scalers are not suggested for personal use as they may damage the tooth surface or gum if not used properly.
The new Plaque Scraper, is a double-ended non metallic version of a dental scaler, and is conveniently designed for personal use by the non-professional. The Plaque Scraper is made of a single plastic handle with two dental picks projecting axially from either end. The plastic dental picks that are connected to the end of the handle are safer to use, in contrast to the metal tips of the conventional metallic scalers used by dental practitioners.
The Plaque Scraper, purpose is to remove plaque (or the soft deposits) only , not calculus or hard mineral deposits. So if one has calculus, it is recommend that one should have a deep cleaning or planning and root scaling by a dental professional prior to using the Plaque Scraper.
