Scaling and polishing are fundamental dental procedures that play a vital role in maintaining optimal oral hygiene and a fresh, clean smile. At our Dental Clinic, we offer thorough scaling and polishing treatments to help you achieve a healthy mouth and a confident appearance.
Examination: Our dental professionals will examine your teeth and gums to determine if scaling and polishing are necessary.
Scaling: Using specialized tools, our dental hygienist will carefully remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. This process might involve ultrasonic devices or manual instruments.
Polishing: After scaling, your teeth are polished using a gentle abrasive paste and a rotating brush or rubber cup. This helps remove surface stains and leaves your teeth feeling smooth.
Benefits of Scaling and Polishing:
Personalized Care: Our Dental Clinic offers comprehensive scaling and polishing treatments personalized to your specific oral health needs. Our dental professionals ensure your comfort throughout the procedure and provide valuable advice on maintaining good oral hygiene between visits.
Frequency: It’s recommended to undergo scaling and polishing every six months as part of your regular dental check-up routine. However, your dentist may adjust this frequency based on your individual oral health needs.
Scaling, also known as dental cleaning or deep cleaning, involves the removal of plaque and tartar buildup from the surfaces of your teeth, especially below the gumline. Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, can harden into tartar, which is challenging to remove through regular brushing and flossing.
Polishing follows scaling and involves the smoothing of the tooth surfaces to remove surface stains and plaque remnants. This procedure not only enhances the appearance of your teeth but also helps prevent future plaque buildup.
