Scaling & Polishing

Scaling and polishing is a dental procedure that involves the removal of plaque and tartar from the teeth, followed by polishing to remove surface stains and leave the teeth clean and smooth.

I went to the clinic because I was having toothaches, and after seeing the doctor, I learned that my tooth was decaying and that I would need to have it extracted. I was terrified of the pain, but Dr. Nancy and the staff made the process go very smoothly, and even though I have a small daughter, I didn't have to take any medication. I am really grateful for that. I had free therapy; thank you very much ma'am.
