Scaling and Polishing

Scaling and Polishing

When do we need scaling and polishing?

Due to various food and bacteria, our teeth will eventually be stained to a yellowish tinge. Other than staining, calculus (stones) will start to develop due to food stuck between the teeth. When calculus builds up, it could lead to gum swelling and infection. Scaling will remove the calculus and the polishing will clean the teeth of stains. This will help to keep the gum and tooth to be clean and healthy thus, leading to a lesser possibility of gum disease, swelling and the gums bleeding.

One would need to do scaling and polishing on a regular basis. Dentists recommend that scaling and polishing to be done at a six-month interval. It also helps to prevent the gum from receding and diseases that are ultimately the main cause of shaky teeth. It also facilitates screening for oral disease like cavities and tooth decay.

Having regular scaling and polishing helps to maintain healthy teeth and gum. Bleeding gums while brushing is an early sign of gum disease. Visit our dentist clinic to prevent it from getting worse. With regular professional cleaning, a positive attitude and good oral hygiene, you will have a clean mouth and will be able to smile confidently.

At Healthway Dental, we use ultrasonic scalers to ensure complete oral hygiene.

What is an ultrasonic scaler?

Device we use to remove calculus from teeth is an ultrasonic scaler.

It consists of a wand with a small scaling tip that produces a soft ultrasonic vibration.

The small, quick vibrations in combination with a water flow give us a whole new level of effectiveness in calculus removal.

The benefits of ultrasonic scaling include:

  • Increased efficiency of calculus removal
  • Less need for hand scaling of stubborn deposits
  • More comfortable access to the root surfaces, thanks to the small tip
