Teeth Scaling Polishing in Gurgaon
Why do you need to do teeth scaling & Polishing?
The tartar layer not only contains minerals but bacterial colonies start their habitat. This tartar is difficult to be removed with normal tooth brushing and requires professional ultrasonic scaling and polishing at a dentist’s office.
People with habits can form stains over the teeth surfaces. Tobacco users, heavy tea and coffee drinkers, and red wine drinkers can have mild to moderate teeth discolorations. Usually, teeth scaling and polishing are recommended to be done once a year. For people with habits, it will be a frequent procedure to get teeth cleaned every 3 to 6 months.
If this tartar is allowed to build up on the teeth, it will, unfortunately, provide the right conditions for bacteria to thrive beside the gums. The purpose of cleaning and polishing is basically to leave the surfaces of the teeth beautifully clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them and so provide you a better chance of keeping the teeth clean during your regular daily dental hygiene regime.

Myths about Dental Cleaning
Dental Scaling makes teeth sensitive
Fact: Dental scaling and polishing is a completely non-invasive procedure. If there is an excess of plaque and tartar deposits in between teeth and gum surfaces, after removal of these deposits there is a root area exposure due to gum recession. These areas become sensitive for a day or two after the removal of tartar. In these cases, a sensitivity paste is recommended to give relief from immediate sensitivity.
Teeth Cleaning can lead to tooth mobility
Fact: Tartar leads to gum disease and gum recession. This leads to tooth mobility and eventually tooth loss. Teeth cleaning prevents gum disease.
Professional Dental Cleaning removes Enamel
Fact: Dental cleaning is done with ultrasonic vibrations along with a force of air and water. This way only stains and deposits on the tooth surface are removed without any harm to tooth enamel.
Teeth Scaling causes gum bleeding
Fact: Teeth cleaning removes tartar and helps to prevent gum disease. Progressive gum disease can lead to gum swelling, bleeding, and mobility of the tooth.
