Tooth Polishing | Teeth Polishing (Dental Polishing)

About the process

If you have gingivitis – the least serious type of gum disease – your dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth thoroughly above and below the gums using a handheld or electric instrument. This is sometimes called a scale and polish.

What is the procedure

Scaling – Specialized cleaning instruments are used to gently break down the plaque or tartar deposits without causing damage to the soft gums. These instruments use ultrasonic vibration to loosen and fragment the hard deposits sticking to the teeth surface. Water is sprayed to wash away the debris.

Polishing – Once complete elimination of tartar deposits is achieved, special prophylactic pastes are applied to the tooth surfaces and polished with rubber cups and polishing brushes attached to a hand-piece. Polishing helps to remove superficial stains and render the surface smooth which also prevents debris from attaching to the teeth afterwards.


Procedure Advantages

A teeth cleaning appointment can be your most valuable visit to the dentist as it will help to identify and prevent gum diseases at an early stage, avoiding harmful consequences later on in life. Although daily brushing, flossing and mouth rinses do help to keep your teeth clean, professional teeth cleaning is required to get rid of debris from every nook and cranny in the mouth.


Technology involved

Tooth Cleaning instruments use ultrasonic vibration to loosen and fragment the hard deposits sticking to the teeth surface.

For Polishing special prophylactic pastes are applied to the tooth surfaces and polished with rubber cups.

AMS recommendation for best results

It is essential that you visit the dentist at least every six months. This adds up to two visits per year which are enough for a dentist to identify teeth or gum problems and rectify them ASAP.


Duration Approximate 30 minutes for the mild tartar accumulation.

Number of sessions

If you have mild to moderate accumulation of plaque or tartar with early stages of gingivitis, your teeth can be cleaned in a single visit. But, if there is extensive tartar build up accompanied by severe gingivitis or periodontitis, it may take two or more appointments to eliminate the problem.
