Author: LASYA GENJI, DHANARAJ GANAPATHY, KEERTHI SASANKA
Abstract: Tooth polishing is a procedure that is performed in most of the dental practices. It is an act to even out the rough surfaces of the tooth to make it aesthetically appealing and smoothening of tooth surface after restoration prevents deposition of plaque. Polishing typically refers to both cleaning and polishing, cleaning is the ability to remove the deposits on the tooth surface and extrinsic stains by making the tooth surface lustrous and smooth. However routine polishing is not recommended as it causes damage to the enamel. Use of proper technique, selection of least abrasive polishing agent, controlled working time, pressure during procedure are to be taken care during the process of tooth polishing. A questionnaire pertaining to the polishing systems in dentistry is prepared and administered through an online portal forum, survey planet link to 50 dental professionals who volunteered for the study. The responses were tabulated using Microsoft Excel and the data is coded for statistical analysis. Statistical analysis is performed with the help of SPSS software. Chi square tests were performed by setting p value as .05 which is considered to be statistically significant. From the results, general practitioners had good insight and practical knowledge on the polishing systems, different instruments used for polishing, and effects of tooth polishing when compared to interns.
