Nonsurgical therapy aims to eliminate bacteria within the microbial biofilm and calcified biofilm microorganisms from the tooth surface and adjacent soft tissues. Complete elimination of such pathogenic microorganisms is probably over-ambitious. However, absence of inflammation in the periodontium results in beneficial clinical changes.In addition, nonsurgical therapy aims to form an environment during which the host can more effectively prevent pathogenic microbial recolonization using personal oral hygiene methods..The various methods utilized in nonsurgical therapy, like hand instrumentation, ultrasonic and sonic scalers, and ablative laser therapy

The aim of this review article is to outline the use of surgical microscope and microsurgical loops in enhancing and removal of calculus under magnification. The use of high level magnification combined with head mounted coaxial lighting may improve the ability of dentist to perform prophylaxis. The detection and removal of calculus located subgingivaly can be visualised by magnified view of supragingival contours. Use of magnification, facilitates improved visual acuity, rapid wound healing and increased acceptance by the patient
