Regular scaling and polishing will improve your oral health, clean surface stains and reduce the risk of gingivitis, gum disease and dental decay.
Plaque and tartar can form even if you brush and floss regularly. Built up plaque and tartar is best removed by a dentist with professional dental instruments.
We recommend that you visit the dentist once or twice a year for dental scaling and polishing. Scaling is a routine procedure done to remove stubborn tartar and plaque build-up from below the gum line. After scaling, we will polish your teeth with a polishing paste and a rotating rubber cup (similar to an electric toothbrush), to improve the appearance of your teeth and remove bacteria.
This will help improve your oral health, clean surface stains from coffee, tea, red wine or tobacco use, and in the long run, reduce the risk of gingivitis, gum disease and dental decay.
You will leave us feeling clean, fresh and looking forward to the next appointment in just a few months!
