Scaling removes the hard tartar which cannot be removed by brushing, and stains from coffee, tea, cigarettes or red wine are removed by polishing.
It is gum disease and not tooth decay that is the major cause of tooth loss in adult patients. Bacteria thrive in the plaque and tartar on your teeth, producing harmful chemicals that irritate your gums and cause them to bleed, eventually causing teeth to become loose. Therefore, regular removal of bacteria, plaque and tartar professionally by the hygienist is essential to maintain healthy gums.
A hygiene treatment includes polishing your teeth with the Airflow system leaving your teeth brighter and cleaner.
Excellent home care is also vital so the hygienist will also show you brushing and flossing techniques which will help you keep to your teeth in optimum condition.
