Dental Scaling and Polishing

Understanding Teeth Cleaning (Scaling and Polishing)

Undergoing a professional teeth cleaning by a dentist or a qualified dental hygienist is a key part of maintaining oral hygiene and is required at regular intervals to ensure the well-being of your teeth and gums. The objective of teeth cleaning is to eliminate plaque (a soft, sticky film teeming with bacteria), tartar (also known as calculus), and stains that collect on the teeth, despite everyday brushing and flossing.

Tartar is a hardened form of plaque that results from the calcium present in the saliva. The only effective way to eliminate tartar is through scaling.

At our dental clinic, we advise teeth cleaning every 6-12 months to minimize the risk of gingivitis advancing into periodontal disease. Good oral hygiene practices at home are also vital between routine cleanings to prevent tartar accumulation and gum disease.

Our professionals use specialized tools to delicately remove these deposits without damaging the teeth or the enamel. All dental tools undergo stringent cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization procedures to maintain safety and quality.

Our Cleaning Process

We use an ultrasonic instrument that generates gentle vibrations to dislodge large chunks of tartar, followed by cool water spray to wash away the dislodged debris. For smaller deposits and final touch-ups, we utilize fine tools called scalers.

Each tooth is individually scaled to ensure thorough tartar removal, surface smoothing, and teeth polishing. Teeth cleaning is a painless process. The sensation of cool water mist, mild vibrations, and pressure during scraping does not typically cause discomfort. Some patients may experience minor sensitivity after a teeth cleaning, but this usually subsides within a couple of days with the use of a desensitizing toothpaste. Most dental cleanings last between 30 minutes to an hour. Post a professional cleaning, you can expect a fresher feeling mouth and visibly brighter teeth.

Benefits of Teeth Cleaning Routine teeth cleaning, including scaling and polishing, offers several benefits

  • Achieve a brighter, whiter smile with the removal of dull stains on your teeth.

  • Clean teeth and healthy gums help prevent gum diseases and future tooth loss.

  • Early detection and treatment of oral lesions, mouth ulcers, and other painless lesions often discovered during a routine cleaning or dental check-up. Oral cancers are treatable if detected early.

  • Regular cleaning can reduce the risk of gum diseases, which are linked to cardiovascular diseases, thereby minimizing the risk of strokes and heart attacks.

  • Early identification of hidden cavities, signs of broken fillings, chipped teeth, and fractures if any.
