Teeth Scaling Polishing in Gurgaon

Dental Cleaning also known as teeth scaling polishing, is a teeth cleaning procedure performed routinely in a dental clinic. While everyone brushes their teeth daily, still there is tartar deposit formation that is hard to remove with normal tooth brushing. This is advised to be cleaned with professional ultrasonic scaling and polishing at the dentist’s office.
The tartar deposits get mineralized through salivary minerals and get even stronger. With bacterial lodgement into tartar, they became more harmful to teeth and gum surfaces. These are not removed with normal tooth brushing and require a professional dental cleaning with ultrasonic scalers. Dental statins are not only the reason to get a dental cleaning. Professional scaling and polishing help to keep your teeth and gums in good health. We are one of the best dental clinics in Gurgaon for routine professional teeth scaling and polishing. 

Why do you need to do teeth scaling & Polishing?

You can observe a soft film-like layer formed over your teeth surfaces. This is called a plaque. With your routine brushing, this is removed making teeth whiter and brighter. But, if this layer of plaque remains intact for 48 hours, this gets mineralized with salivary minerals and forms white calculus. This can still be removed with normal tooth brushing. If it is left over some time, this calculus turns into a dense hard tartar.

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.

  • To remove stains caused by food (coffee/tea) or tobacco.
  • To remove tartar or calculus – this helps prevent gum diseases which are the main cause of gum recession, loose teeth, and subsequently, tooth loss.
  • To allow screening for oral diseases like decay and any cavities.

Myths about Dental Cleaning

It is a common misconception that normal oral hygiene is sufficient to keep your mouth clean and healthy. Homecare like daily brushing, flossing, and use of mouth rinse helps to prevent calculus and tartar build-up around teeth. But you need a professional cleaning once a year to stay away from gum diseases and teeth issues. There are many myths about professional scaling and polishing teeth. Here you will find out the real facts about these dental myths.
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. 

Difference Between Teeth Whitening & Dental Scaling

Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure utilized to change the shade of a natural tooth. The shade of teeth goes lighter up to 3 to 4 shades. Whereas, dental cleaning is a routine dental procedure that removes tartar deposits between gums and teeth and outer stains over the tooth surface. Dental scaling and polishing are recommended to be performed once a year to maintain healthy gums and teeth. Whereas Teeth whitening is entirely a cosmetic procedure that a patient wilfully gets to enhance the aesthetic value of one’s smile.
