What is Calculus Removal and Polishing?

Without proper brushing and flossing, saliva, foods, and fluids in our mouth will cause bacteria to deposit, leading to a build-up of tartar and dental plaque which are unhealthy, unsightly and hard to remove. Most often, it is difficult to notice that plaques have built up around our gums and teeth, which is why regular visits to the dentist is important.

Our affiliated dentist is able to thoroughly remove all plaques using scaling. If not removed, more plaque can build up around the tooth and potentially under the gum line, leading to the progression of gum disease. In addition to scaling, polishing is performed to help smooth away minor imperfections on the teeth such as patches of rough texture, which also protects your teeth from further plaque build-up. The result is clean, smooth and healthy teeth.

Scaling and Polishing Procedure

1. Plaque and tartar around your gum line and in between your teeth are removed with a scaler. This is called scaling.
2. A special paste (prophylaxis paste) is applied on the teeth and polishing is performed using coarse and fine abrasion techniques.
