Scaling and Polishing

How is scaling and polishing done?

Step 1: Your dentist will check your teeth if got any decay and weak spots in the enamel.
Step 2: Plaque and tartar are removed from the surface of your teeth in a process called scaling.
Step 3: Your teeth are then buffed and polished to remove staining before being flossed.

Is scaling and polishing painful?

No, the scale and polish procedure shouldn't hurt, but you may feel some unusual sensations in your mouth. This might include a scraping sensation or a tickling feeling in your gums. A numbing gel can be used if you are very nervous about any dental pain.

How often should you do scaling?

Plaque formation on the teeth is a continuous process. If this is not removed by brushing it starts mineralizing into tartar within 10-14 hours. Such persons may require periodic scaling, every 6 months or so. The golden rule is to have a routine dental check up every 6 months.
