Scaling and polishing is the removal of plaque and hard deposits built up on the teeth and the polishing of the smooth surface of the teeth. Everyone is advised to brush their teeth at least three times a day or after every meal to avoid teeth damage. However, there are cases where plaque and tartar buildup still occurs. It is important, therefore, that regular brushing is complemented by a more thorough dental cleaning such as scaling and polishing. Scaling is a non-surgical procedure, that takes place during a regular visit to the dentist. Ultrasonic device is used for scaling. An ultrasonic scaler consists of a hand-piece with a variety of tips which are used depending on the type of tartar being removed. The tip of the device vibrates at a very fast rate and removes the tartar and stains from the outer surface of the tooth. Polishing is done at a slow pace with a soft, motorized tool and a special polishing paste. This procedure smoothens out the external surfaces, making it harder for dirt to get attached to your teeth. Your dentist can tell you how often you need to get it done. Most dentists recommend twice a year routine. If you maintain good oral hygiene exceptionally well, some of them recommend that you get it done once a year.
