Even the most dedicated brushers will experience mild amounts of build-up. Plaque build-up on your tooth enamel can lead to cavities and gum disease. If left untreated, these problems can lead to symptoms of gingivitis, such as swollen and bleeding gums, and tooth loss.
Fortunately, with preventive care, it’s possible to preserve your natural teeth for a lifetime. A scale and clean, also called professional teeth cleaning, helps keep your teeth and gums healthy. This dental procedure is designed to remove plaque and tartar that can’t be removed with regular brushing.
A scale and clean is a great way to keep your teeth healthy and your gums healthy. It removes tartar and plaque build-up and leaves your teeth feeling fresh and clean. However, there are other benefits to receiving a scale and clean:
Enjoy regular scale and clean visits every six months, tailored to your needs and history of gum disease, administered by our skilled and caring dentists.
Our team strives to provide exceptional service and long-lasting results, ensuring your satisfaction with personalised treatment plans for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Experience top-notch dental care at an affordable cost. With extended hours and Saturday appointments, we make it convenient for you to prioritise your oral health.
To ensure that your mouth remains healthy, we recommend a preventive scale and clean every six months if you have healthy teeth and gums.
If you have had gum disease in the past, we recommend a scale and clean more often every 3–4 months.
There is no pain involved with professional teeth cleaning. Your dentist can suggest several options to make the procedure more comfortable for you if you are experiencing discomfort. Your dentist can use numbing gel to reduce some of the sensitivity.
Plaque deposits caught on or between the teeth are usually removed first by the dentist. An ultrasonic scaler, which helps to loosen and dislodge the sticky substance, can be used to do this. This is combined with a therapeutic wash and flush, which uses a tiny spray of cool water to remove plaque and food particles from the spaces between your teeth.
The scaling phase of the operation involves scraping plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth with a small device called a scaler. The ultrasonic cleaner can also be utilized to clean below the gum line at this point. Your dentist will polish your teeth once all of the surfaces are smooth. A slow-speed handpiece with a soft rubber cup that spins at the end is used for polishing. A specific gritty toothpaste-like material called prophylaxis paste is scooped into the cup and swirled around on the teeth to make them glossy and smooth.
Finally, you may opt for a fluoride treatment, which essentially involves your dentist applying a cool fluoride-infused gel on the surface of your teeth to protect them against acid and bacteria. The fluoride gel is swished around in the mouth for at least 30-60 seconds. Following that, you are instructed to spit out as much as possible. Because the acids from bacteria in tartar and plaque have damaged the enamel surfaces, fluoride helps to strengthen them. After the fluoride has been applied, it is advised not to eat, drink, or rinse your mouth for 30 minutes.
A routine dental check-up with a scale and clean treatment generally takes 30 minutes to one hour and is completed in one visit.
Depending on your dental needs and plaque build-up, a routine dental check-up with a scale and clean treatment typically costs between $200 and $275 per visit. If an x-ray is required, the price could range from $300 to $400.
