What is Scaling and Polishing?

Scaling: Scaling is a thorough cleaning process that removes plaque, tartar (calculus), and stains from the surfaces of your teeth, including those areas below the gum line. Plaque is a soft, sticky film of bacteria that can harden into tartar if not removed regularly. Tartar buildup can lead to gum disease and other oral health problems if left untreated.

Polishing: After scaling, polishing is performed to smooth and shine the teeth. This process removes surface stains and minor imperfections, leaving your teeth looking cleaner and brighter. Polishing also makes it more difficult for plaque and bacteria to adhere to the surfaces of your teeth.

Benefits of Scaling and Polishing

  1. Prevention of Gum Disease  Regular scaling and polishing help prevent gum disease by removing the bacterial buildup that can cause inflammation and infection in the gums.
  2. Improved Oral Hygiene: These procedures make it easier to maintain good oral hygiene by reducing the amount of plaque and tartar that accumulate on your teeth.

  3. Brighter Smile: Polishing removes surface stains, resulting in a brighter and more attractive smile.
  4. Fresher Breath Removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria helps eliminate bad breath (halitosis), contributing to fresher breath.
  5. Overall Health: Good oral hygiene is linked to better overall health. Regular dental cleanings can help reduce the risk of systemic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Scaling and polishing are dental procedures used to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth, helping to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent gum disease.

    These procedures help prevent tooth decay and gum disease by removing harmful bacteria and buildup that can't be eliminated by regular brushing and flossing alone.

    It is generally recommended to have scaling and polishing done every six months. However, your dentist may suggest more frequent cleanings based on your individual oral health needs.

    Most patients experience minimal discomfort during scaling and polishing. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, your dentist can use a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort.

    A typical session lasts about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the amount of plaque and tartar buildup and your overall oral health.
