Scaling & Polishing

What is Scaling & Polishing?

Scaling and Polishing is the cleaning of your teeth, both the visible part above the gums and just under the gums where your toothbrush is unable to reach. Scaling refers to the removal of plaque and calculus (the white or yellow hard deposits that accumulate on your teeth and is not removable by routine brushing). Polishing refers to the removal of stains and very small particles of calculus.
The dentist may sometimes refer you to our hygienists for a scale and polish. The hygienist specialises in this area and the care of your gums.

Scaling & Polishing (Why)

To prevent decay- Plaque is a naturally occurring substance that exists on the surfaces of the teeth. When plaque builds up it hardens to form calculus or tartar. Bacteria thrive in the crevices formed by the plaque and calculus, and when combined with food debris lead to increased risk of tooth decay.
