      Default Cleaning teeth with a dental scaler

      I was looking in Boots today an saw that you can buy a pack consisting of mirror, scaler and pick.

      I have a few brown lines at the back of my teeth which the dentist said is staining, the instructions for the scaler said it removes stains by rubbing it up and down your tooth but I want to know is it safe to scrape into the brown lines with the sharp pointed end to try an get the brown lines off.

      I know they are out of sight but I know they are there an dont like it.

      Thanks.

      Unless you can see what you're doing, I wouldn't do this, you could do an awful lot of damage quite easily.
