Scaling & Polishing

Scaling is needed on a regular basis by every one. it is suggested that scaling should ideally be done at six monthly intervals.

Plaque and calculus is deposited in every one's mouth. The calcium that is present in the saliva causes the plaque to get calcified and hard. This results in the fact that it cannot be cleaned by brushing no matter what.

The only method to get rid of this calculus is get the Dentist to do a Scaling. These days very efficient ultrasonic scalers are available. The tips vibrate at a very high frequency and fragment the calculus. The accompanying water spray washes the debris out. A suction is used to just suck this out. The end result is a clean mouth that is not only more hygenic but also better looking.

Bad breath is caused by bacteria that are present in the plaque and calculus. Removal of the plaque and calculus also removes bad breath. If not done on a regular basis, the bacteria cause the bone that holds the teeth in place to be lost. This leads to loosening of the teeth.

This is a basic service provided by “Sri Dental Clinic”. The plaque and calculus and stains if present are removed. This can usually be done in one visit. This basic procedure goes a long way in increasing the life of the teeth.
