What are the steps involved in teeth cleaning?
Teeth cleaning involves two steps:
- Scaling – Ultrasonic instruments are used to remove the plaque or tartar without disturbing or damaging the soft tissues. Mechanism of the process is, ultrasonic vibrations loosen and break down the plaque or tartar. Water is sprayed on the teeth continuously to wash away the debris.
- Polishing – Polishing helps remove stains and makes the surface smooth. We use special pastes and polishing brushes to polish the teeth on completion of debris removal.
