SCALING & POLISHING
Scaling and Polishing (Teeth cleaning)
Scaling is the procedure by which plaque & calculus(tartar) are removed from the teethPlaque is a thin layer of biofilm around teeth.Calculus is hardened (calcified) plaque.Both contain millions of bacteria.If not removed,calculus can cause bone loss and thereby tooth mobility.Scaling is also done to remove stains which are otherwise not possible to remove by tooth brushing.
Scaling is one of the commonest dental treatment advised by dentist.Scaling does not cause weakening of tooth,as it is falsely believed but it is a simple,safe and effective treatment to prevent gum disease. We at our clinic will advise you,whether scaling is required to you or not.
