Calculus removal

Sheet calculus on the lower anterior lingual, you know the kind where you feel like you can continue scaling for an hour and it continues to fall off. Does it ever just not come off?

I know how you feel. It seems like as your cleaning it off it is literally growing back right before your eyes! Lol
I’ve found the the universal Colombian 13/14 using the toe helps. Also a spoon like the doc uses to check and spoon out small amount of decay works great too.

The cavitron is my best friend! Even if that’s the only spot they have calculus, I’m not spending a half an hour on the lower anteriors. If it’s really bad, I’ll take an IOP before and after and educate them about electric brushes.

Blowing air to see where it still is helps, less strokes because you can see it better.
