Scale and Polish

What to expect from a scale and polish

Deep debridement using an ultrasonic scaler – this is the process of removing tenacious deposits such as plaque and tartar. Once your teeth are clean of this bacteria build up, the hygienist can check for decay and infections.

Prophylaxic polish – we can now thoroughly polish your teeth, leaving them glossy, smooth and bright.

Your hygienist and your dentist work together, each taking responsibility for different aspects of your oral and dental care and communicating together to offer you the best level of care. Whilst a dentist has a more all-encompassing role, your hygienist is an expert surrounding gum health, which is the foundation of a healthy mouth.
