Scale & Polish

This is a special cleaning done by your dentist, which removes calculus (tartar) and staining from your teeth.

This is important as it maintains the health of your gums and prevents bone loss.

At your scale and polish appointment, the dentist will make a careful assessment of the condition of your gums. Your teeth will then be scaled, using special instruments which remove any calculus (tartar) leaving your teeth and gums very clean.
The teeth are then polished to make them smooth, making it easier for you to keep them clean at home.

It is important to see your dentist regularly for a scale and polish as well as taking care to brush and floss your teeth carefully every day at home.
