Scaling and Polishing
Despite our best efforts, brushing twice a day does not remove all the plaque in our mouths, plaque that remains in the mouth will eventually harden and form calculus or tartar. Manual tooth brushing will not be able to remove this tartar and it must be removed by the dentist only.
Scaling and polishing routinely once or twice annually improves oral health thus help us to prevent gum (Periodontal) disease that can lead to tooth lost. After scaling, we will polish off your teeth with polishing paste containing fluoride for extra protection. Surface stains from coffee, tea, red wine or tobacco use are also cleaned away during polishing. Do visit nearby clinic for proper scaling and polishing consultation and treatment.
