General Dental Care
Scaling and Polishing
Professional dental cleaning should be carried out regularly to remove dental plaque, calculus, and stains from the tooth surfaces. Usually done after scaling, polishing removes surface stains while making your teeth smooth and shiny and preventing the incidence of caries and periodontal disease.
Procedures for scaling
The dentist will use an ultrasonic cleaning device to remove plaque, calculus, or stain from the tooth surfaces. We will also use a special cleaning paste to polish the tooth surfaces until they are clean and smooth. The whole procedure will be done carefully and gently.
Points to note after scaling
If you have gum disease, you may experience slight discomfort and gum bleeding for a few days after scaling. However, you should still pay attention to cleaning your teeth properly. The situation will gradually get better.
