For many years, the standard of care for the dental hygienist performing a prophylaxis included coronal polishing. It remained the standard until research discovered that polishing removed valuable enamel. At that time, the recommended standard of care shifted and the concept of “selective polishing” was established.
The American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA) came on board with their position paper on polishing that stated the following:
Polishing is viewed as a cosmetic procedure with little therapeutic value
Thorough brushing and flossing can produce the same effect as polishing
Continuous polishing can, over time, cause morphological changes by abrading tooth structure away
Fluoride in the outer layers of enamel is removed through polishing
