SCALING AND POLISHING (FOR GUM HEALTH)
The gums and jawbone are the supporting structures for natural teeth. There is a 3-5 mm deep pocket between the gum and the tooth in every person. After every meal, this pocket collects food debris which cannot be cleared away with toothbrush bristles. After a few hour bacteria will come and colonies the food debris and make a powdery deposit which we refer to as plague. Overtime minerals from the saliva will deposit on the surface of this plaque and calcify it leading to calculus formation which is a hard-shell harboring bacteria. If we left unchecked the calculus sheltering bacteria cause gum swelling, bleeding and bone loss. In severe cases, the teeth become mobile and need to be removed. A professional scaling, which is scientifically called “sub-gingival curettage” is a procedure where special ultrasonic instruments will remove plague, and calculus to preserve gum health. A thorough scaling and polishing are recommended every 6 months. Our polishing procedure will leave your mouth feeling healthy and clean.
