Cleaning and Polishing

Cleaning and Polishing

Scaling and polishing of teeth are widely recommended treatments for removing tartar and plaque that forms between teeth and the gums. Polishing and scaling are good treatment options to choose for teeth stains which are difficult to remove by simple brushing.

Plaque formation is a continuous process which mineralises into tartar in 10 to 14 hours. Tartar is a yellow, brown or blackish deposits between the gums and teeth which leads to unhealthy gums over a period. Scaling and polishing of teeth do not weaken them but prevents gum diseases.
