What is a Scale and Clean?
Even if you’re a dedicated brusher and flosser, it’s important to have your teeth cleaned professionally by a dentist at least once every six months. A thorough scale and clean will get rid of plaque and calculus, and staining from tea, coffee and red wine, so your teeth can look and feel their best. It will also help prevent gum disease.
What is the procedure for a scale and clean?
Your Coolamon Dental dentist will use an ultrasonic device around your gum line which vibrates and loosens any large areas of calculus. Water is sprayed over the area to wash away any debris.
The Coolamon Dental dentist then works around each tooth with a pick and scaler tool to scrape away any remaining calculus deposits and smooth the surface of your teeth.
For small areas of decay or heavy staining, air abrasion (a jet of compressed air) may be used.
Your teeth will then be given a good polish.
If you have generally healthy teeth and gums it shouldn’t be painful. If you have sensitive gums a local anaesthetic can be administered to make the procedure more comfortable.
