Teeth scaling and polishing is one of them, besides being a main treatment type on its own. Formally known as ‘root scaling and planning’, ‘deep cleaning’ teeth scaling and polishing is a well-established dental practice that we’ve been using for a long time now. It is a standard part of a routine cleaning appointment as well as a part of braces, gum-related treatments, and more.

What is teeth scaling and polishing?

Teeth scaling and polishing is a combined procedure done to remove tartar and plaque build-up and improve the appearance of your teeth for better oral health. 

Teeth scaling process involves specialized dental instruments to remove plaque and tartar build-up from the surface of your teeth and below your gum line, the place you cannot really clean either with brushing or flossing.

Polishin, which is done after scaling, is for smoothening, removing stains, and other microorganisms formed on the surface of your teeth. It is a finishing touch after scaling for a perfect outcome.
