My teeth was infected with the plague all around my teeth and I went to dentist doctor, he scaled my teeth with the scaling machine and now my teeth is shining but whenever I am drinking or eating something cold then my whole teeth is feeling like sensitive to cold. I am very worried. Is my teeth becomes very weak? I am just 22 years old. Some of my friends told me that scaling make teeth weak. Is that so? is my teeth becomes very weak? please reply me very soon.

No, scaling does not make your teeth weak. The portion of teeth which was covered by plaque is now exposed to your oral cavity so it is sensitive. Tell your dentist regarding this problem he ll help you.
