Scaling & Polishing

scale-and-polish

Scaling or cleaning of teeth is a procedure that is done to clean the gums and periodontal area from plaque, tartar and calculus. Normally even with good brushing habits, tartar and calculus starts depositing in the gums; especially in the areas between the teeth.

Proper cleaning and scaling is needed almost once a year for healthy people. While people with progressive gum disease or periodontitis may need to get their scaling done every 2-4 months as per the dentist’s advice.

What causes tooth decay?

Decay is caused by bacteria that collect on teeth and feed on the carbohydrates in our diet. The bacteria produce acid that wears away at the enamel on our teeth. If decay is left untreated, it can cause pain, infection and even tooth loss. Protect your teeth against decay by brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, visiting your dentist regularly.
