Professional Teeth Cleaning: Scaling and Root Planing is the removal of calculus (tartar) from the teeth both above and below the gumline. Tooth polishing is the mechanical removal of bacterial plaque and extrinsic stain from tooth surfaces. A soft rubber cup is used with a grit paste. The removal of bacterial plaque and calculus helps maintain healthy teeth and gums, aiding in the prevention of gingivitis and periodontal disease (gum disease).
