Usually done after scaling, polishing removes surface stains while making your teeth smooth and shiny. Your dentist will use another instrument, along with a special paste, to polish your teeth. Depending on your oral health, you may need to get your teeth cleaned every six months.
It must be emphasized again that scaling of teeth does not weaken them but prevents gum diseases which bring about bleeding gums and if not checked lead to more serious and extensive gum problems.
During the teeth scaling process, your dentist or dental hygienist will numb the gums and tooth roots with local anesthesia, but teeth scaling and root planing cause very little discomfort.
Wait at least two hours before eating, and then select a soft diet for the first 48-72 hours, chewing on the opposite side of your mouth. Avoid alcoholic drinks and hot or spicy foods until your gums are healed. Do not use any tobacco products for at least 72 hours after the procedure because tobacco slows healing.
Brush Gently. Three to five days after your last root scaling treatment, both bleeding and discomfort will start to abate. It is still a good idea to continue using a soft toothbrush, however, given that hard bristles and aggressive brushing can cause the gums to draw further back from the teeth
Compared to tooth whitening, polishing de-scales and polishes teeth, and is done as part of the regular trips to the dentist. The common technique of teeth polishing uses tiny and concentrated blasts of air to clean the dental plaque and tartar that builds on teeth.
Gum recession can’t be reversed. This means receded gum tissue won’t grow back. However, you can keep the problem from getting worse. Treatment usually depends on the cause of the gum problems.
