SCALING & POLISHING
Scaling and Polishing is a dental process that involves two procedures:
- Scaling procedure: that involves cleaning of teeth and gums and removal of calculus, plaque, and dental debris from the surfaces of the teeth and roots.
- Polishing procedure: that involves removing stains, smoothening, and restoring the surface of the tooth.
It’s really important to understand that dental scaling is a procedure that should be done periodically at your dentist clinic and that it’s not an aesthetic procedure as much as it’s a precautionary one.
