Over time, plague and tartar will accumulate on your teeth which unfortunately creates the right conditions for bacteria to thrive next to your gums. To keep your teeth clean and healthy, regular scaling and polishing is necessary for your teeth.
While flossing will help minimize plague, tartar can’t be removed at home and can only be removed by a professional dentist.
What to expect:
During your appointment, your dentist will begin with scaling your teeth, using special tools to remove plaque and tartar. Next, your dentist will use air flow to remove the small remains of the plaque under the gum which not visible by eye then will polish your teeth using a special paste to remove any stains. Finally, your dental professional will use floss to make sure the areas between the teeth are clean.
DisclaimerEvery patient is a unique individual and every treatment has unique aspects. Therefore, no two cosmetic procedures will get the exact same results — even if patients are similar and if the procedures are performed by the same doctor.
Before undergoing a cosmetic procedure, please be sure to have an individual one-on-one consultation with a qualified doctor.
