But no matter how well you clean your teeth, there will always be hard to reach areas that are not easy to keep clean.
In these areas, bacteria can accumulate and may soon mineralise to form hardened deposits called tartar, which is impossible to remove by just brushing.
If not removed, more plaque can build up around the tooth and under the gum line, leading to the progression of periodontal disease.
To lessen the risk of periodontal disease or to help stop it from becoming more severe, your dentist may advise that you have a professional clean, called a scale and polish, to get your teeth properly cleaned.
What is a Scale and Clean?
This is where dental health starts.
There’s no substitute for removing disease-causing dental plaque and calculus from your teeth — especially in hard-to-reach areas near the gum line.
That’s why regular professional scaling and cleanings are so important to your health.
Teeth scaling and root planing help deal with persistent gum disease. They are more in-depth than a regular teeth cleaning.
Teeth scaling and root planing often take several dental visits and could need a local anaesthetic based on the severity of your persistent gum disease and if you have receding gums.
The Scale and Clean Procedure
A dentist or hygienist can do a scale and clean.
The first stage removes the deposits of plaque and calculus. Often, a tool with the name of ultrasound scraper is used first to get rid of the bulk of the tartar, followed by specialised hand-held instruments to scrape away any stubborn remains.
The next step is to polish the teeth to make the surface smooth. While polishing eliminates stains, leaving teeth bright and shiny, it is not just a cosmetic procedure. It also buffs minor imperfections and patches of rough texture on the teeth to protect against further plaque build-up.
Your dentist will inform you how frequently you should have a scale and clean. Always remember that professional cleaning is an addition to a good daily oral health practice, and should never replace twice-daily brushing with a fluoride toothpaste.
