What is tooth polishing ?
Polishing is often the last step in dental care, just after scaling and root planing.
Dental polishing removes stains and leaves teeth smooth and shiny.
It is not just a cosmetic dentistry procedure.
It also smoothes out small imperfections and rougher areas of the teeth to prevent plaque from building up again.
The first step for a tooth polishing treatment is to remove plaque and tartar deposits by “scraping” the tooth surface.
Ultrasound is often used to remove the bulk of the calculus first, followed by specialized hand instruments to remove the more resistant parts.
The session ends with the passage of a rotating rubber wheel coated with a paste to remove the last stains and roughness.
When is a tooth polishing treatment needed ?
Gum disease is often caused by the accumulation of bacteria (plaque).
The best way to remove this plaque is to brush your teeth twice a day.
But no matter how carefully you brush, there are still areas that are difficult to reach.
It is in these areas that plaque can build up and mineralize into a solid deposit called tartar, which cannot be removed by brushing alone.
If this tartar is not removed, more plaque can build up between the teeth and potentially under the gums, which can make the disease worse.
To reduce the risk of gum disease or prevent your gums from getting worse, your dentist may recommend professional scaling and polishing.
How often should I have my teeth polished?
Your dentist in Addis Ababa will tell you how often you should have your teeth scaled and polished.
Remember that professional cleaning is a supplement to your daily oral routine.
Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to prevent plaque build-up between visits and you’ll reduce the need for frequent scaling and polishing dental appointments.
