Subject: Re: a good tooth scaler

It's my understanding that scaling at home may not be such a good
idea. The teeth need to be polished afterwards otherwise the rough
surface that's left on the teeth from scaling just promotes faster
buildup of more tartar and plaque.

Any dental technicians out there that can comment on this?
