Scaling and Polishing
Saliva contains minerals, which when attached to the teeth for a long time will be harden and form tartar. The rough surfaces of tartar plaque make it easier for bacteria to stick to and often cause inflammation of the gums (gingivitis).
One indication of this is bleeding of the gums, especially when brushing teeth. Tartar cleaning (scaling) should be routinely performed every 6 months to prevent gingivitis. Because if left unchecked, gingivitis will progress to periodontitis (periodontal inflammation) which one of the symptoms is tooth mobility. This treatment can not be done alone at home because it uses specialized tools and techniques.
Pit & Fissure Sealent
In some patients with deep pits and fissures, covering it with a sealent is needed to prevent caries.
Topical Aplication of Fluoride
Fluoride protects teeth from caries. Fluoride given on the treatment will be at high concentration, so it must be done by a dentist in a given period of time.
