Clean and Scale
Regular brushing is the first defense against tooth decay and gum disease. However, sometimes plaque can build up on those difficult-to-reach areas and the only way to remove it is with a professional scale and polish.
Our dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth in a simple procedure, which is very effective in preventing serious problems from developing. Our hygienist will scrape away the first layers of plaque, using a water jet alongside the scraper to clean away the loosened pieces. If the plaque is more developed, we may also need to clean below the gum line After the scraping stage, we clean the teeth using an electric polisher, removing any surface stains and leaving you with fresh and shiny feeling teeth.
A regular scale and polish visit with your dentist is an important part of your oral health routine. Your Earlwood dentist will be able to advise the best frequency for you.
