GMCClinics Dental Scaling and polishing in Dubai

Dental scaling & polishing and what you need to know

Jul 08 2017 By Dr. Iyad Estoiny

A smile is not just cheerful on the outside but works through your brain, cheering your mind as well. It is very important then to make sure you take good care of your teeth.

While many people follow dental hygiene practices regularly; plaque, tartar and other problems will always build up over time. This is why you will need to visit your dentist on an annual basis to keep your dental health in check. If you feel you want to give your smile an upgrade, you can do so by simply by going for dental scaling and polishing in Dubai.

Scaling

Scaling is the practice of removing debris, mostly plaque, from your teeth using manual or ultrasonic methods. First, the dentist will examine your mouth to discover any problematic areas. Once this is complete, the dentist will use specialized devices to remove any plaque or other build up in your mouth carefully. Many modern clinics such as GMCClinics use ultrasonic scaling devices that create vibrations that remove plaque, tartar and more from tooth surfaces and below the gum line as well. Once you are done with scaling, your dentist might perform and oral irrigation to wash out all the loosened debris and to prepare your mouth for the next stage, polishing.

Polishing

Once unwanted debris has been removed, the dentist will polish your teeth to bring out the natural shine and whiteness of your enamel. Sometimes, a prophylactic paste with varying levels of abrasiveness, will be used along with a prophy cup. These pastes, with their abrasive material can remove extrinsic stains formed by food and beverages such as coffee and even smoking. You can opt to have fluoride added to the paste to help re-mineralize your teeth. Your dentist may choose what methods to polish your teeth based on your oral condition. This includes sensitive teeth, teeth suffering from infections and swellings, metallic or external fillings and other factors.

How does it feel

Dental scaling and polishing in Dubai is generally considered as a cosmetic treatment however it does involve using abrasive material so there may be chances that you will feel a slight discomfort. However, this is negated by your dentist with the use a local anesthetic or numbing paste on your teeth and gums. It is advisable to not eat, drink or touch your teeth just after having them scaled and polished as they may still be under the numbing effect.

There are plenty of options available for dental scaling and polishing in Dubai and GMCClinicsoffers some of the most thorough practices from experienced dentists using advanced and state-of-the-art equipment. If you’d like to get your teeth scaled and polished at an affordable rate, check out GMCClinics now.
