6 Advantages of Dental Cleaning and Scaling

Talk to a Dentist Now!

Humans get their new teeth only twice in their lifetime. When the milk teeth fall off then the permanent teeth erupt. The damage that occurs on your tooth is permanent in nature. There is no method to bring back to the original condition of the tooth. Hence the old proverb ‘Prevention is better than cure’ applies here.


One of the effective preventive procedure in dentistry is regular dental cleaning and polishing. It detects the oral threats in the beginning stage and prevents it. Let’s understand each benefit of regular teeth cleaning and polishing.

1. Prevent Tooth Decay and Cavities

The prime reason people visit the dentist is to prevent cavities. These holes form when plaque begins eating away at the outer layer of your teeth called the enamel.


Plaque is a sticky white deposit of bacteria that forms on your teeth. Brushing and flossing twice in a day helps to remove plaque buildup, and a professional cleaning every six months is even more effective.

2. Avoid Gum Disease

Gum disease
Plaque doesn’t just decay your teeth – it also damages your gums when it builds up below the gum line. If progressed to advance level, gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Fortunately, regular teeth cleaning decrease plaque buildup and greatly decrease the chance of this happening to you.

3. Remove Stains

Some daily habits such as drinking coffee, tea, and wine or using tobacco products – can cause stains on your teeth. Brushing removes some of this, but stubborn stains can remain on the teeth. This can be eliminated thorough teeth cleaning and polishing from your dentist and it is truly necessary to brighten your smile.

4. Prevent Bad Breath

Good oral hygiene habits are the best way to prevent halitosis or chronic bad breath. Brushing and flossing is a good method, but this alone cannot help when you have an underlying dental issue such as tartar buildup – a hard, crusty deposit that stains your teeth and traps bacteria.


In such cases, you may struggle with bad breath despite taking good care of your mouth. Scaling, which is a technique dentists use to remove tartar buildup from along the gum line, is necessary to freshen your breath and restore your confidence.

5. Improve Your Overall Health

Your mouth affects the rest of your body more than you probably realize. It sounds odd, but regular teeth cleaning visits can help lower your risk of heart attack and stroke.


This is because the chronic inflammation associated with gum disease can lead to hardened arteries, which can, in turn, cause a heart attack or stroke. Many other seemingly unrelated medical conditions, from kidney disease to diabetes, can be detected in their early stages simply by visiting the dentist.

6. Save Money on Restorative Dentistry

One of the biggest reasons people skip routine teeth cleanings is to save a few bucks. However, the cost to clean and polish your teeth is far less than the restorative dentistry required to fill a cavity or treat periodontal disease. As it turns out, a bit of preventive care helps you avoid unpleasant and potentially costly problems in the future.


Expert opinion

    Dr. Preethi Nagarajan Dental Director at Sabka Dentist says “When plaque sits a long time on the tooth, it will turn to tartar and start eating your enamel. In Regular check-ups, such tartar is identified and removed with the scaling device.”

    Dr. Manan Dhuliaa Dental Director at Sabka Dentist says “Scaling and Polishing provide prevention against cavity. Hence Regular Dental Checkups and Cleaning sessions also can prevent many diseases.”
