Teeth Polishing Treatment/ Teeth Cleaning in Mumbai

Having the perfect set of pearly whites are the real confidence booster for males as well as females. A bright and attractive smile is known to attract positive thoughts and vibes. Dull, stained and scaly teeth are not something you want to see when somebody smiles at you. We eat all kinds of foods, drink what we fancy and though most of us are conscious about how it is going to affect our weight / healthy but we forget that the food and drinks leave behind a residue on the teeth too. Dentist visits are often last on the list of health check-ups and as a result plaque and tartar build up on the teeth. In professional terms these are called as calculus. The tartar forms a welcome ground for the bacteria and dental diseases. Scaling removes the tartar and teeth polishing in Mumbai is done after scaling to bring back the natural evenness and shine to the teeth.

Teeth polishing has more than just the cosmetic benefits; it benefits the teeth health too. With the combination of scaling and teeth polishing the cosmetic dentist can get rid of the unwanted plaque and biofilm and you will have healthy gums. Scales helps remove the plaque that the normal toothbrush misses and teeth polishing helps get rid of the micro debris that are left behind. Dental polishing is cosmetic dentistry procedure in India that can easily remove surface stains on teeth and leave them shiny and smooth, just like you always wanted. Dental teeth polishing is also the final step for putting the finishing touches on preventive dental treatment. However, if you're looking for a much more noticeable change in tooth colour, other whitening options might be more appropriate.

Teeth polishing procedure

Teeth polishing is a simple and painless dental procedure. The dental hygienist usually uses a small, soft rubber cup and polishing paste, which is put on your teeth and works its magic, is painless procedure. If your teeth are severely stained the, your dental professional may use the advanced air-polishing system or recommend the simple therapeutic polishing, which helps remove bacteria from tooth roots exposed during dental surgery.

Steps of polishing:

Step 1: The cosmetic dentist will inspect your teeth and gums and identify the areas that have evident decay and are weak spots for polishing.

Step 2: Careful scaling removes the plaque and tartar from your teeth and you will be able to see the difference the difference in your teeth in between breaks.

Step 3: Your teeth are then buffed and polished to remove staining before being flossed and topped with a protective coat of fluoride.

There are two primary ways that standard polishing can be done

Polishing Pastes for Teeth

This method uses tooth polishing pastes are called prophy pastes (prophylaxis), which refers to the preventive, disease-preventing effects of tooth cleaning and polishing. Depending on the amount of polishing needed your dental  hygienists can choose between fine, medium, and coarse grit pastes to fill the rubber cup that delivers the paste to the tooth surface. Coarse and medium pastes are most effective at removing surface stains. However, they can also microscopically scratch and roughen the tooth enamel, making it easier to develop stains later. Fine pastes are less damaging and create a more highly polished finish, but sometimes can be less effective at removing deeply embedded stains.

Air Polishing for Teeth

Air polishing is another popular technique used by top cosmetic dentists in India to for teeth polishing. . Air polishing uses a jet of air, water, and an abrasive agent to remove stains, which is just as effective as polishing with a rubber cup and prophy. The upside of air polishing is that it is generally less harsh on tooth enamel. Sodium bicarbonate is often used as the abrasive agent in air polishing, but glycine (a naturally-occurring amino acid) is less abrasive and just as effective.

Can you polish your teeth at home?

There are plenty of DIY recipes and over-the-counter (OTC) tooth polishing kits available in the market that claim to give the same result at home that you would get during a professional tooth polishing during a dental visit.

 Some of these home remedies for stained teeth include use of common ingredients such as baking soda or activated charcoal. We wouldn’t recommend it! Baking soda and silica in toothpaste have a similar effect and you are not really gaining anything from using them on a long run. Keep in mind that the enamel never comes back, so trying to do something yourself can lead to abrasion of the enamel, increased tooth sensitivity, and even irreparable tooth decay. Avoid at-home kits at all costs. Do not depend on most commercial l toothpastes that promise that basic polishing that can be done at home.

The benefits of polishing teeth

The obvious benefit to getting teeth polished is that you have a bright smile. However, the benefits of polishing teeth go beyond just shiny and happy smile:

  • Periodic polishing of teeth ensures that there is no build up of plaque and tartar that are the main culprits of breeding ground for bacteria that can cause bad breath and even cardiovascular issues.
  • The enamel of your tooth is preserved.
  • There are fewer chances of dental caries and you retain use of your teeth throughout your life.
  • Regular teeth polishing procedures done twice a year will keep the problems like the swollen gums, receding gums, and tooth decay at bay.

Precautions for Teeth Polishing

  • Polishing is generally considered safe for all. If you are overly sensitive teeth, then do let your dentist know the same as polishing for sensitive tooth can lead to aggressive damage.
  • Teeth polishing is not suitable for those who suffer from teeth erosion or have some previous wear on their teeth.
  • Take care that you pay special attention to the regular teeth cleaning routines. Polishing can prevent tooth decay to some extent but you need a regular professional flossing and scaling appoints with your dentist to maintain the teeth health.

No two patients are the same. For those who have the tendency to accumulating build up faster or have periodontal issues, top cosmetic dentist in Mumbai recommended repeating polishing every two months.

What is the post procedure care for Teeth Polishing?

When you are done with the process of teeth polishing the dental hygienist will give you some basic care instructions that you can follow at home. To help keep your teeth the glossy best the post procedure care for teeth polishing includes:

  • Maintaining good oral hygiene after the procedure by brushing and flossing regularly.  
  • Instead of choosing a standard favourite toothpaste opt for a dentist recommended sensitive toothpaste over to help decrease any sensitivity on the tooth enamel. This will help offset the overall sensitivity and strengthen teeth.
  • Avoid some teeth damaging foods post the teeth polishing: Sticky, Citruses, Spicy, Crunchy, Cold or too hot.
  • Avoid or quit smoking and tobacco chewing to prevent staining of teeth.
  • Be sure you stay hydrated. You should avoid sugary drinks, as it can be harsh on your newly cleaned teeth. Water is the best choice, as it will not stain your teeth and hydrates you the best out of any liquids you could be drinking.
