The Professional Scale and Polish Treatment, often referred to as ‘Prophylaxis', involves removal of plaque and hard tartar deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Your teeth are continually bathed in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth. Due to this, the teeth get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth. If this tartar is allowed to build up on the teeth, it will lead to bacteria thriving inside the gums. Therefore, the purpose of Scaling & Polishing Teeth is to leave the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them and so provide a better chance of keeping the teeth clean. The Scaling & Polishing Teeth Treatment uses specialized instruments to gently remove the deposits without harming the teeth. The instruments which may be used during cleaning consist of Ultrasonic Instrument, Find Hand Tools, Polishing and Fluoride. Ultrasonic Instrument helps in knocking larger pieces of tartar loose and it also sprays a cooling mist of water while it works to wash away debris and keep the area at a proper temperature. Once the larger pieces of tartar are gone, the Dentist switches to finer hand tools to remove smaller deposits and smoothen the tooth surface. Since these tools are curved and shaped to match the curves of the teeth, they allow the doctor to remove small tartar deposits by carefully scraping them off with a gentle to moderate amount of pressure. Thereafter, once all the surfaces are smooth, the dentist polishes the teeth using a motorized soft rubber cup. Scaling & Polishing Teeth Treatment takes multiple sessions.
