Scaling And Polishing

It is important to have your teeth professionally cleaned by a dentist, as daily brushing cannot remove all hard deposits on your teeth.

Even brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day will not remove plaque in hard to reach areas such as between your teeth and gums. As a result, cavities and gum disease may occur. The main reason for tooth loss over the age of 40 is due to gum disease. Preventive measures are best by booking a dental cleaning at least twice a year to ensure a bright and healthy smile!

Scaling and polishing

Scaling and polishing removes deposits such as plaque and calculus (tartar) from tooth surfaces. Over time, the regular removal of these deposits may reduce gingivitis (a mild form of gum disease) and prevent progression to periodontitis (severe gum disease). Routine scale and polish treatment is sometimes referred to as “prophylaxis“, “professional mechanical plaque removal” or “periodontal instrumentation”.

Many dentists or hygienists provide scaling and polishing for most patients at regular intervals even if the patients are considered to be at low riskof developing gum disease.

a ‘routine scale and polish’ was scaling and polishing of both the tooth and the root of the tooth to remove plaque deposits (mainly bacteria), and calculus. Calculus is so hard it cannot be removed by toothbrushing alone and this along with plaque, other debris and staining on the teeth is removed by the scale and polish treatment. Scaling or removal of hardened deposits is done with specially designed dental instruments or ultrasonic scalers, and polishing is done mechanically with special pastes.

Air polish 

Air polishing is a very gentle method of stain removal and is comfortable even for those of us with very sensitive teeth. No heat or pressure is placed on the tooth surfaces. Because it is gentle, air polish is a great way to clean around delicate implants. However, air polishing has other advantages. Not only does it remove stains; it also removes plaque and can help to reduce gingivitis and treat gum disease

We us special hand piece, which carefully sprays a fine jet of compressed powder, air and water against the tooth surface. As a result this completely removes dark stains which have built up on the tooth
