Scaling and Polishing

Brushing your teeth twice a day or eating an apple once a day might keep the dentist away for some time but eventually, just like everyone else, your teeth will require professional cleaning. Scaling has become a routine procedure at a dentist’s clinic around the world. This is the process of removing tartar or plaque that builds up over time on your teeth with professional tools.


Why is Scaling and Polishing So Important?

Even though brushing your teeth or flossing can do wonders to improve your oral hygiene, plaque and tartar can find a way to grow even in the healthiest of teeth. Scaling and polishing is an affordable, professional procedure that cleans the teeth in places where normal flossing or brush bristles can’t reach.

What Happens During the Procedure?

Sometimes a numbing agent is applied to make the process more comfortable. After plaques and tartar are removed, polishing is done to remove any stain on the teeth and leave a shiny appearance. Vivid use EMS brand scalers. hand scalers and air polishing to acheive better cleaning. EMS is one of the most popular Swiss brand company in dentistry.

What is Gum treatment?

Our gums are the single most important anchors for our teeth. The gumline is highly susceptible to infection and disease spreading from a decayed or damaged tooth.

At Vivid Dental Surgeons, gum treatment is a scaling and cleaning procedure that effectively gets rid of all the built-up tartar and plaque under the gum.



Screening for Gum Disease.

Any disease of the gum will typically present with swelling, pain or soreness in the gums. Checking for gum disease makes an integral part of a routine dental examination. Periodontitis is an infection of the gums that can cause the teeth to become loose and even cause bone loss if not treated properly.

At Vivid Dental Surgeons, we put great emphasis on the prevention of an infection of the gums. Root planning, scaling and polishing, effectively remove plaque and tartar build-up from the gum line. We recommend for regular check up at least twice a week.
