A procedure to clean your teeth thoroughly is Scaling and Polishing. The hard tartar which forms over the teeth, trapped food and plaque containing germs are cleaned with Scaling. After cleaning the surface of your teeth, polishing is done to remove stains from coffee, tobacco, tea & wine.
Dental hygiene treatment includes professionally cleaning the teeth for the patient. This is usually called scaling and polishing. However, perhaps our most important role is showing the patient the best way to keep the teeth free of plaque.
After creating a beautiful smile it would be a shame to ruin it because of gum recession or maybe lose a tooth due to loss of bone support, all due to poor oral hygiene.
Both the dentist, hygienist and oral health therapist (OHT) also plays an important role in treating gum disease.
