Polishing

Polishing helps to remove plaque and extrinsic stain from the coronal surfaces of teeth. It is accomplished by using either an abrasive agent (pumice or paste) loaded on a rubber polishing cup, or a specially designed, high-powered nozzle that delivers a slurry of water and sodium bicarbonate.

Disposable polishing angle helps to decrease cross contamination
