Scaling & Polishing

 
Scaling and polishing symbol

Despite our best efforts at regular brushing and flossing, bacteria can still get stuck around teeth and beneath gums. Regular and professional scaling can help to prevent oral issues such as gum disease, gingivitis, bone loss, halitosis (bad breath), and even tooth loss.

Why isn’t regular brushing and flossing enough?

Polishing with a special paste helps to remove stubborn surface stains to keep your teeth sparkling clean.


How often do I need to get my teeth professionally polished?

Depending on your oral hygiene, our dentist may recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned every 6 months.
