Teeth Cleaning – Scaling and Polishing

Tooth Cleaning – Scaling and Polishing – SK Smile Dental Clinic Airoli

WHY DO WE NEED PROFESSIONAL TEETH CLEANING?

A very well executed teeth brushing and flossing cannot remove every bit of food that remains after eating food. Over time this food accumulation leads to the formation of tartar and plaques in between your teeth as well as between teeth and gums. This leads to cavity formation, bad breath, pus or various gum diseases, seriously damaging your teeth and gums. In extreme cases, teeth may tilt or become mobile and eventually fall off. Therefore, it becomes extremely necessary to get these deposits cleaned by a dental professional periodically.

(Most common site for tartar or plaque formation is on back side of front lower teeth, you can observe this in a mirror).

WILL TEETH CLEANING HARM MY TEETH?

It is a common belief that cleaning causes loosening of teeth and also causes a gap between the teeth. But this is a misconception. A successful session of complete cleaning will eventually lead to the strengthening of teeth in the socket as there will be no remaining tartar that causes infection.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF TEETH CLEANING?

Professional teeth cleaning involves scaling and polishing of the teeth.

‘Scaling’ is the process of scraping off the hardened pieces of plaque and tartar that are stuck to your teeth using a modern ultrasonic scaler. With ultrasonic scalers, this process has become much faster and virtually free of any side effects because it does not cause damage to teeth enamel.

‘Polishing’ refers to smoothening of teeth surface so that it becomes shiny and smooth which prevents any accumulation of food on it. This is done after teeth scaling. A polish is applied on all teeth surfaces and then it is smoothened using a rotating brush.
