Scaling and polishing routinely referred to as teeth cleaning, is one of the fundamental dental treatments. Regardless of brushing and regular flossing, after every meal, the initial invisible layer known as “biofilm” forms. This biofilm along with the dead cells in the oral cavity, bacteria and food particles forms a soft white coating on the tooth surface called “Plaque”. This plaque is the initiating factor for all gum-related issues. This plaque is seriously injurious to the gums and causes gum bleeding and inflammation.
Long standing Plaque after combining with the minerals found in the saliva, eventually hardens and forms “calculus” or commonly knowns as “tartar”. These hard deposits cannot be removed by manual and electric toothbrushes. Chronic accumulation of plaque and calculus can give rise to halitosis (bad breath). Hence it is mandatory to have a routine dental check-up and scaling done by dental professionals. Get the best teeth cleaning services in Al Barsha at Versatile Dental Clinic, Dubai.
