Dental Scaling and Polishing
- Visit dentist for every 6 months for dental check-up to prevent gum disease by scaling and polishing. Gum disease is caused by film of bacteria called plaque. Plaque will get trapped and cannot be removed by regular brushing. If untreated, gum disease could lead to bone loss.
- Symptoms of gum disease:
- Gums that are red, swollen and bleed easily
- Bad breath
- Loose tooth
- Pain when bite something
- Scaling: Complete removal of plaque and calculus using ultrasonic instruments
- Polishing: Smoothening the tooth surfaces and removed the soft deposits and stains from the tooth surfaces.
