Home Dentistry in Dubai Teeth Scaling and Polishing

Teeth Scaling and Polishing

It is crucial to maintain your dental hygiene and oral health because various infections and diseases can be caused by dental bacteria and viruses. If you regularly visit a dentist and get your teeth checked and cleaned, you will stay protected from gum diseases, misaligned teeth and other dental problems. Moreover, you will be able to keep white, strong and straight teeth for a longer period of time. 

But, if you are not taking good care of your teeth, it is quite possible they will lose their natural white color and will become discolored. Yellow teeth can cause you a lot of embarrassment while smiling or laughing and can lower your confidence. Therefore, we are offering teeth scaling and polishing in Dubai. Both of these procedures are an integral part of the teeth cleaning routine.

What is Scaling?

As a result of eating and drinking, food and bacteria accumulate in our teeth and eventually form dental plaque. With the passage of time, this plaque calcifies and hardens to form tartar. Regular teeth brushing and flossing can remove plaque but not tartar. For this purpose, you need a professional scaling treatment. 

During the scaling treatment in Dubai, a special instrument is used by the dentist to remove the plaque and tartar without causing any damage to the gums or teeth.


Scaling is also effective for removing smaller pieces of tartar and plaque that are often found between the gum and teeth line or under the gums. During the procedure, manual scraping tools are used. They are intricately curved tools that are matched with the teeth profile. The dentist applies gentle to moderate pressure to scrape off the tiny pieces of tartar from teeth. Continued scraping will eventually remove all the tough plaque from teeth.

What is Polishing?

Polishing is also a type of teeth cleaning that is done mostly after scaling. It removes the stains and makes your teeth shiny and smooth. Dentists use an instrument with a special paste to polish your teeth. 


For polishing, the dentist will use a tiny instrument that has a soft rubber cup at its end. In addition to this, a special prophylaxis paste is also used that provides the right amount of friction to the rubber surface. The paste is filled up in the cup which is then rotated at a slow speed. 

The gritty texture of the paste, when coupled with the gentle pressure of the rotating cup, leads to a successful smoothening of the outer surface of the teeth. Teeth polishing Dubai ensures complete cleaning of teeth and protects you from several periodontal diseases.


There are countless benefits of teeth scaling and polishing Dubai. Some of them are mentioned below;
