In brief: Better to go to appt
Ask your dentist for suggestions on medication they you an take for pain control.
Ask if the can apply a local anesthetic to the area(s) if it starts to hurt too much. Usually scaling is a bit uncomfortable. Extent of material to be cleaned determines time and perhaps discomfort. Make sure to thoroughly floss and brush twice per day once scaling is complete to prevent recurrence.

In brief: Ortho phosphoricacid
Use super phosphozyme $15 by biotic research.
Use few drops in your mouth after few min rinse - the scales will disintegrate and fall off. After this brush teeth with baking soda to remove acid from teeth prevents dental scaling visit. If you want to prevent scales forming use magnetized water - by using imrs mat with 70mt for 8 min and drink this water scales will not be able to form.
