Scaling & Polishing - Teeth

Plaque and tartar can cause a variety of dental diseases such as gingivitis, gum disease and dental decay. Plaque can be removed by tooth brushing and flossing, but tartar can only be removed using professional dental instruments. Scaling and polishing routinely once or twice annually improves oral health by removing plaque and tartar from the teeth. Surface stains from coffee, tea, red wine or tobacco use are also cleaned away during polishing.

 

Scaling does not require the use of local anesthetic (injections to numb the teeth) but can be used if the teeth are sensitive. Scaling is performed using an ultrasonic tip, which vibrates at high frequency to remove tartar, and hand instruments to remove tartar below the gums. A little discomfort may be experienced if the cleaning is done slightly below the gum line. After scaling, we will polish off your teeth with a rotating rubber cup (similar to an electric toothbrush) and polishing paste containing fluoride for a clean feel

I will like to make a complain on the following dentist: Dr Cheung Keat Choi Adrian DCR No.: 21642I I have made an appointment on 2nd October 2020, 12pm at NTUC Denticare Heartbeat@Bedok to do normal dental cleaning and polishing. However, upon doing so, I was told to take X-ray and given 20mins of talking to convince me to see a "recommended" specialist. Initially, I am open to listening and consideration. However, as Dr Cheung proceed on, he sounded more like a sales talk. He even showed me pictures of the specialist and telling me she is young and pretty.(In my mind, I thinking... It is unethical and I don't need to know.) Then he went on compare the price and showing me that if I don't do it now, it will be too late. And I will not be able to afford doing the "repair" later... (In my mind, he sounded more and more like sales talking.) I interrupted him and explained that, I will consider on the specialist but now just wanted only a normal "cleaning and polishing". To my surprise, I was told that, he wouldn't do any cleaning and asked if I am keen to make an appointment for the specialist. He literally tells me that it's a waste of time cleaning and I should seek specialist help, which I declined and left. Before me, I also heard other clients being referred to see specialist. (And estimated cost $1.5k-$2k as told.)I can't help but to ponder, why am I being pressured to see a specialist? Can't I just clean my teeth first, and decide on the specialist care later, which was my intention? If I had knew that, I wouldn't have wasted my time there. To think that NTUC's brand name can be trusted, now I think twice... I hope the dental council can investigate if this is the ethical standard that our doctor should protrude. I will also be making a formal complain to MOH, Singapore Dental Council and CASE.
