Understanding Dental Scaling and Polishing
Dental scaling and polishing are preventive dental care procedures aimed at removing plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth. These procedures are essential for preventing gum disease, tooth decay, and maintaining overall oral hygiene.

Dental Scaling: Scaling involves the removal of plaque and tartar (calculus) from the tooth surfaces and the gum line. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth, and if not removed regularly, it can harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional.

Dental Polishing: Polishing is done after scaling to remove surface stains and make the teeth smooth and shiny. This process helps in removing any residual plaque and also gives your teeth a bright, polished appearance.

The Importance of Dental Scaling and Polishing
Regular dental scaling and polishing have several benefits:

Prevention of Gum Disease: Plaque and tartar buildup can lead to gum disease, characterized by inflammation, bleeding, and receding gums. Scaling and polishing help in preventing these issues by keeping the gums healthy.

Improved Oral Hygiene: Removing plaque and tartar makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene at home. It reduces the risk of cavities and tooth decay.

Enhanced Appearance: Polishing removes surface stains caused by food, drinks, and smoking, giving your teeth a cleaner and brighter look.

Fresh Breath: Eliminating plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums helps in maintaining fresh breath and preventing bad breath (halitosis).
