Scaling and Polishing

Scaling and Polishing

Even with regular and proper dental habits, bacteria and plaque may still lurk in places you cannot see with your naked eye.

Scaling gets rid of plaque, tartar and bacteria toxins from the surfaces below the gum line. Depending on the severity of your condition, the dentist may numb the area to minimize the discomfort. Polishing is usually performed after scaling to eliminate stains caused by coffee, tea or red wine. Polishing will also leave your teeth smooth and shiny.
