Scaling and Polishing in Newbury, Berkshire

Smile n Shine Clinic in Newbury, Berkshire offers scaling and polishing services to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. These dental services are essential aspects of routine dental care. The process involves professionally cleaning your teeth to remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains, often missed during regular brushing and flossing. Scaling refers to removing tartar deposits above and below the gum line using specialised dental tools. On the other hand, polishing is a procedure carried out to smoothen the tooth surface, thus making it difficult for plaque to accumulate. Call us today to schedule your next appointment.

The Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings

Regular scaling and polishing are essential in preventing gum disease and cavities and maintaining oral hygiene. These preventive measures support long-term oral health and prevent more extensive dental issues. We encourage our patients to schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings. Not only do these visits allow us to keep your teeth clean and healthy, but they also enable us to detect any potential issues early. Early detection often results in simpler and more effective treatment options.

Accumulation of calculus irritates the gums causing them to inflame. Inflamed gums get swollen, bleeding – a condition called gingivitis. Over time, the gums deteriorate further causing loss of underlying bone. Scaling and polishing removes the irritating factor, i.e. calculus thus improving and preventing deterioration of health of gums.
