Dental Scaling And Polishing Singapore

Brushing your teeth twice a day or eating an apple once a day might keep the dentist away for some time but eventually, just like everyone else, your teeth will require professional cleaning. Dental scaling and polishing have become a routine procedure at every dental clinic around the world. This is the process of removing tartar or plaque that builds up over time on your teeth with professional tools.

Why is Scaling and Polishing So Important?

Even though brushing your teeth or flossing can do wonders to improve your oral hygiene, bacteria, plaque and tartar can find a way to grow even in the healthiest of teeth, therefore dental cleaning is very important to prevent problems such as gum diseases, teeth damage and tooth decay. Scaling and polishing is an affordable, professional procedure that cleans the teeth in places where normal flossing or bristles of the toothbrush can’t reach.

What Happens During the Procedure?

We understand that visiting the dentist can be stressful for some patients. Sometimes, a numbing agent is applied to make the process more comfortable for our patients. After the plaque and tartar are removed, polishing is done to remove any stain on the teeth and leave a shiny appearance. At Vivid Dental Surgeons, our dentists use EMS brand scalers, hand scalers and air polishing to achieve better dental cleaning.

How Often Should I Schedule An Appointment for Scaling and Polishing?

We recommend that you get your teeth cleaned through scaling and polishing at least twice a year to maintain the health condition of your teeth. In fact, we have helped many of our patients be educated on the importance of oral hygiene and teach them how to take better care of their teeth to prevent tooth sensitivity and tooth loss.

What is Gum treatment?

You’re probably wondering how dental polishing and scaling is related to our gums. Did you know that our gums are the single most important anchors for our teeth? That is because our teeth are connected through the gum pockets, and without proper care, it can cause bleeding gums and gum inflammation too.


In fact, the gumline is highly susceptible to infection and disease spreading from a decayed or damaged tooth. Therefore, the procedure of scaling and polishing can prevent all these issues by removing any food deposits and plaque build-up that is stuck in between teeth and gums.

Screening for Gum Disease

Any disease of the gum will typically present with swelling, pain or soreness in the gums. Bleeding gums are also a symptom of gum disease. Checking for gum disease makes an integral part of a routine dental examination. Periodontitis is an infection of the gums that can cause the teeth to become loose and even cause bone loss if not treated properly.


At Vivid Dental Surgeons, we put great emphasis on the prevention of gum diseases. Root planing, scaling and polishing can effectively remove plaque and tartar build-up from the gum line. We recommend every patient with gum disease come for regular check-ups at our clinic at least twice a week.
