Scaling and Polishing for Healthy Teeth

BDS, CDE Endo-Prostho, CDE - Cast Partial & Complete Dentures
Dentist, Pune
Scaling and Polishing for Healthy Teeth

What is scaling?
Over time, even with regular brushing and flossing, plaque (sticky, soft, bacteria infected layer) and tartar (calcium) deposits build up on your teeth. Scaling removes the tartar and plaque with specialised equipment. Scaling effectively cleans up your teeth by using ultrasound to loosen the tartar and then using tools to scrape it off from the surface of the tooth.

What is polishing?
Polishing is done to remove excess plaque and remove stains. Scaling is always followed by polishing. Polishing also smoothes and shines the teeth to prevent plaque from building up again. It is either done by foam or fluoride gel treatment to reduce the possibility of tooth decay and sensitivity.

Why are they done?
Scaling and polishing are not only done for cosmetic reasons; they are also done for overall oral health. Excessive plaque and tartar buildup will eventually lead to the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive and multiply. The ultimate purpose of polishing and scaling is to clean the surface of the teeth so that the bacteria cannot attach to them and cause serious oral problems (such as gum disease). Also, scaling and polishing offer far better cleaning of your teeth than everyday brushing and flossing.

However, scaling and polishing is not a curative treatment. If your teeth have been damaged by cavities or other oral diseases, you need medical attention.

In fact, professionally, this treatment is called prophylactic treatment; and the word ‘prophylactic’ comes from prophylaxis, which is Greek for ‘to prevent disease’. Thus scaling and polishing is more of a preventive measure than a cure.

Do they hurt?
This process is essentially painless. Most of the people who undergo this treatment usually have the following experiences:

  1. Tickling sensation
  2. Coolness from the water used to clean the mouth
  3. Pressure during the scraping process (The dentist uses specialised tools to “scrape” the tartar deposits off the tooth’s surface). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Around 50% of the time one or more wisdom tooth will be missing. Sometimes it can be embedded in jaw bone and not able to erupt in the mouth. An opg (orthopentamogram) x-ray will help to know what is the cause. You can get it done.

Flossing is as important as brushing on a daily basis. Taking the floss all the way down to the point where the teeth and gums meet is the appropriate way of doing it.

Hi I would recommend you to see a dentist for clinical evaluation. I would advise you to get a round of scaling done every 6 months. Following that you can go for bleaching to improve the colour of your teeth.

Is chewing gum like happydent and orbit actually good and healthy for our teeth? If not recommend something better.

BDS, MDS Prosthodontics
Dentist, Greater Noida
Is chewing gum like happydent and orbit actually good and healthy for our teeth? If not recommend something better.
chronic consumption of chewing gums sometimes causes side effects because too much xylitol has been known to draw too much water into the gut with it or it may get fermented in the gut by intestinal bacteria which results in nausea,bloating, diarrhea and a psychological feeling of dependence. Apart from these most of the chewing gum contains aspartame, which in the body is broken down to phenylalanine, few of the people have genetic abnormality to metabolise it. So it leads to phenylketonuria in them. This informations are usually mentioned in most of the chewing gum brands.

Root Canal Treatment - How it Can Relieve Your Tooth Pain and Save Your Smile?

Dentist, Gurgaon
Root Canal Treatment - How it Can Relieve Your Tooth Pain and Save Your Smile?

A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. The common causes affecting the pulp are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth or trauma. The term "root canal" comes from cleaning of the canals inside the tooth's root.

Millions of teeth are treated and saved each year with root canal, or endodontic, treatment. Learn more about root canal treatment and how it can relieve your tooth pain and save your smile.

The Procedure-

  1. A root canal procedure begins with an X-ray to determine the shape of the root canals and whether the infection has spread to the adjoining bone.

  2. Local anesthesia is then administered to numb the affected area.

  3. A rubber sheet is then placed around the tooth to keep the area and prevent it from the saliva.

  4. A hole is then drilled in the affected tooth, following which the decayed pulp and nerve tissues are removed.

  5. The removal is done by using root canal files which are inserted into the hole and then used to scrape and scrub the insides of the tooth.

  6. After the scraping, water is used to clean and flush out the debris.

  7. After the tooth is cleaned, it is sealed after administering medications to prevent infection.

  8. The sealing process involves filling the inner portion of the teeth by a rubber based compound and a sealer paste.

Modern endodontic treatment is very similar to having a routine filling and usually can be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. You can expect a comfortable experience during and after your appointment.

  • Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment has many advantages:

  • Efficient chewing

  • Normal biting force and sensation

  • Natural appearance

  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain

Post-obturation:

  1. Once the surgery is done, the tooth may become sensitive due to inflammation of the tissues for the first few days.

  2. This pain and inflammation can be limited by pain medications such as ibuprofen.

  3. It is advised to avoid any chewing by the affected teeth as it can slow down the repair process. You can brush and floss your teeth regularly

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

Probably your wisdom teeth is erupting. Try doing warm water rinses 3-4 times daily. And consult the dentist for evaluation of the tooth, whether it has space for eruption or have to get it extracted.

Cost is different in different places. Deposits in teeth cause gum inflammation. Gum Scaling will remove deposits. your gum will heal properly and bleeding will stop. But maintain good oral hygiene too. Rinse your mouth after every meal. Brush twice daily. Use mouthwash.
