Dental Prophylaxis or Scaling or cleaning is generally the term used by dentists for cleaning the teeth. The procedure for Dental Cleaning / Scaling of teeth is now routinely recommended by Dentists nowadays as the best way to maintain good Dental health. The reason is that small particles of food we eat get lodged in the gaps between the teeth and between the teeth and the gums and tend to remain there in spite of brushing your teeth. Over a period of time, these particles get hardened in a process called calcification. Dentists use special instruments like ultrasound devices to dislodge these particles during the process of scaling / cleaning of your teeth, which results in a clean mouth environment.
Staining / Discoloration / Change in the color of teeth is also a common complaint that Dentists deal with routinely. This is mainly caused by different types of food and drink. The process of cleaning / Scaling / Dental Prophylaxis is at times followed up with the procedure of Polishing of Teeth when your dentist removes the stains on your teeth. The end result is that your mouth gets a fresh feeling and the polishing of your teeth ensures that your smile gets even more radiant/Sparkling than ever.
