Full Mouth Scaling & Polishing

Full mouth scaling and polishing is a dental procedure that is used to remove plaque, tartar, food debris, extrinsic stains, and other debris from the teeth and gums. This is an important preventive measure that can help to reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Scaling and polishing is one of the simple dental procedures. Even with regular brushing, certain areas of the mouth can be difficult to reach with a toothbrush, especially tight corners, and crevices. Therefore, professional scaling and polishing ensure that plaque build-up and bacteria are removed, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. 


Scaling is a process that involves the removal of tartar or calculus, which is a hard substance that forms on teeth due to the buildup of plaque. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth and causes tooth decay and gum disease if left untreated. Tartar can only be removed by a professional dental cleaning because it is too hard to be removed by brushing and flossing alone.

Polishing is the process of smoothing the surface of teeth to remove stains and plaque that may have been missed during scaling. This is done using a special dental tool that uses a polishing paste to remove any remaining plaque and stains.


At House of Dontics, our experienced dentist will use specialized dental instruments and techniques to provide safe and effective full mouth scaling and polishing. This procedure may also involve the use of an ultrasonic scaler, which uses high-frequency vibrations to remove the tartar. We are recommended to patients for full mouth scaling and polishing of teeth every six months. Full mouth scaling and polishing can be done in a single appointment or over multiple appointments, depending on the severity of the buildup and the overall health of the patient’s teeth and gums.

Ultrasonic Scalers

These are handheld devices that use high-frequency vibrations to remove tartar and plaque buildup from teeth. They work by using a small, vibrating tip that breaks up the tartar, which is then washed away with a stream of water.


Air Polisher

Air polishers use a combination of water, air, and polishing powder to clean and polish teeth. The polishing powder is propelled by a stream of air and water, which removes surface stains and cleans teeth more thoroughly than traditional polishing methods.


Intraoral Cameras

These small cameras are used to provide a detailed view of the mouth, allowing dentists to identify areas that need cleaning or treatment. They can be particularly useful for identifying areas of tartar buildup that may be difficult to see with the naked eye.


Laser Dentistry

In some cases, lasers can be used to aid in the cleaning process. For example, lasers can be used to remove tartar and plaque from below the gumline or to treat gum disease.
