What Does Scaling and Polishing Mean?

At the time of the scaling stage of this dental procedure, your Smile Max dentist and hygienist will take out the hardened deposits of plaque and tartar applying a small instrument professionally known as scaler. The scaler is a device which is used gently to dislodge any hardened tartar and plague from the gum line.

The polishing stage dislodges any plaque which remains on the tooth surface after the treatment of scaling. Polishing may also reduce stains from the teeth which can be formed from food and beverages. It’s true that polishing can make the teeth look bright as well as shiny, but it’s not only a cosmetic procedure. Polishing can also make the teeth smooth. It softens the enamel, which can become harder from the buildup of plaque in the tooth but polishing can make this smooth and shiny.
