What are the procedures which are involved in scaling & polishing ?

Scaling

Dental World Clinic used Specialized instruments to gently remove plaque and calculus deposits without harming your teeth. The ultrasonic scaler uses vibrations to loosen hardened tartar that sticks to the teeth/in between teeth. Water spray is also used to wash away the debris. There may be a high pitch buzzing sound heard from the scaler during the scaling process.

Polishing

Polishing is usually carried out after scaling to remove stains and make your teeth feel smooth and shiny. Polishing is done with a soft rubber cup that spins. Prophylaxis paste – a special toothpaste-like material is scooped up into the cup and spun around on the teeth.

Deep Scaling

In deep scaling, a periodontist removes plaque and tartar on teeth below the gum line from the pocket area between the teeth and gums that forms when inflammation is present. The gum tissue is gently pushed back.

Deep scaling is only done when gum disease is present. Typically, early stage gum disease is treated with a professional periodontist from our Best Periodontics Clinic in Kolkata. When disease has advanced, is when we incorporate deep scaling and root planing into treatment. At this advanced stage, if left untreated gums begin to pull away from the teeth and form pockets where plaque is trapped.  Treatment can prevent the unfortunate consequences of bone and tooth loss.

The answer to this question varies from patient to patient.Teeth scaling and root planing can cause some discomfort, so you'll receive a topical or local anaesthetic to numb your gums. You can expect some sensitivity after your treatment. Your gums might swell, and you might have minor bleeding, too.

Dental scaling and planing can often be done in a single, one or two-hour visit to the dentist. However, if you have numerous trouble spots or the infection is widespread, the dentist will usually work on one or two quadrants of your mouth per appointment.

A deep teeth cleaning, from Best Periodontics Clinic in Kolkata can remove a build-up of plaque and tartar on your teeth, reducing gum inflammation and improving gum health.

Plaque is a sticky film that forms on teeth. It contains bacteria and develops when food particles mix with saliva. You can remove plaque, which collects on teeth daily, by brushing your teeth.

Brushing, however, doesn’t remove all plaque in between your teeth. Leftover plaque calcifies or hardens, which forms tartar. The accumulation of plaque or tartar can lead to gum disease. This includes gingivitis, which is inflammation of the gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can advance to periodontitis. This is a serious infection that destroys the bone that supports the teeth.

Soft Tissue Grafting

A soft tissue graft is a procedure to cover tooth roots or replace lost soft gum tissue resulting from excessive gingival recession. Healthy gum tissue is removed from the palate or taken from another donor source and attached to the area where the soft tissue has receded.

Depending on the sort of graft, the amount of pain you suffer varies. If no tissue is removed from your palate, you are not likely to have a problem, but you should have mild to moderate discomfort after the operation if the tissue is removed.

You may choose to undergo a soft tissue graft if you want to enhance your smile and a cosmetic procedure of restorative dentistry. Receding gums affect many people, and the process causes gum recession to expose the tooth's root.

Flap Surgery

Flap surgery is a technique in plastic and reconstructive surgery where any type of tissue is lifted from a donor site and moved to a recipient site with an intact blood supply. This is distinct from a graft, which does not have an intact blood supply and therefore relies on growth of new blood vessels.

Flap surgery in periodontics is a technique in plastic and reconstructive surgery where any type of tissue is lifted from a donor site and moved to a recipient site with an intact blood supply. This is distinct from a graft, which does not have an intact blood supply and therefore relies on growth of new blood vessels.

A flap surgery procedure is often needed to save teeth that are supported by a bone damaged by gum disease, flap surgery in kolkata. Gum disease usually will come back if you do not brush and floss regularly after surgery. To promote healing, stop all use of tobacco.

Most of our patients from Best Periodontics Clinic in Kolkata experience some discomfort after a flap surgery procedure. Depending on your needs, we may prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter medicine. It is important to relax after surgery, as strenuous activity may cause the treated area to bleed.

To access it, a flap-like incision is made in the gum tissue. This allows diseased tissue to be removed from inside the pocket, and provides access to the teeth's root surfaces for a thorough cleaning, which helps to eliminate harmful plaque and calculus (tartar). Afterward, the “flap” is closed, sealing the area.

Any excess gum tissue that is removed to reposition the gum line and reveal more of the teeth will not grow back. This longevity is a relief for patients, particularly those who are self-conscious about the appearance of their gums and don't want to worry about excess gum tissue returning in the future.
