The Benefits of Teeth Polishing

In addition to helping you maintain good oral healthcare, a simple cleaning makes your mouth feel really fresh. And one of the reasons for this feeling is from the professional polishing of your teeth to remove (bacterial) plaque, tartar (calcium deposits), and stain from the tooth surface above the gum line. This standard of good dental hygiene and preventive dentistry called prophylaxis (from the Greek meaning to guard or protect) is typically included as a covered benefit with dental insurance along with scaling (removal of hard deposits from the teeth above the gums).
