The Benefits of a Professional Scale and Polish

Many people may assume that visiting a hygienist is only necessary when you have gum disease, but this is not the case. A visit to the hygienist can be hugely beneficial for all patients, even those with excellent oral health. Now, you can book appointments with a dental hygienist directly so there’s no need to go through a dentist first.

Why should I consider seeing a dental hygienist?

Dental hygienists have advanced training in providing dental hygiene services, including scale and polish, fresh breath clinics and preventative dental treatments and seeing a hygienist on a regular basis can help to cut your risk of developing decay and gum disease. Hygiene sessions can also give your teeth a healthy radiance and boost whiteness by removing surface stains.

What is a scale and polish?

Scaling is a process used to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and the gum line. Your dental hygienist will use specially designed instruments to remove the plaque and tartar from the teeth and then polish them, giving them a lovely brightness and a smooth finish. Cleaning treatments provided by dental hygienists are much more powerful and effective than brushing at home and you will really notice the difference after your session. Surface stains will be banished, leaving your smile looking much brighter and more attractive and your teeth will feel lovely and smooth; your chances of developing oral diseases will also be significantly lower.

Is a scale and polish painful?

The procedure is not painful, although it may feel a little odd at first when your hygienist starts to remove the plaque from the teeth. There is no recovery time required and you won’t feel any pain when you get home. If you’re interested in hygiene treatments or you would like to book an appointment with one of our excellent dental hygienists, call the clinic today!

Super Scale & Polish In Weston Super Mare

Nothing makes your mouth feel cleaner than a trip to the dentist and with our sensational scale and polish treatments your teeth will be gleaming and glowing. We recommend regular hygiene sessions for patients with existing dental troubles, as well as those with a clean bill of oral health as a preventative measure.

What is a scale and polish?

A scale and polish is one of the most common and effective oral hygiene treatments. It is designed to remove harmful plaque and tartar from the mouth and polish the teeth to give them a lovely, healthy sheen. Plaque and tartar are dangerous for the teeth and gums, contributing to decay and gum disease. Plaque is a sticky substance that often clings to the outer surfaces of the teeth. Tartar is a hardened version of plaque that is impossible to remove with normal brushing at home. Tartar is stubborn and causes the teeth to look unsightly and unhealthy, as well as being harmful for oral health. When you have a scale and polish at Clifton Dental Studio, specially designed instruments will be used to remove plaque and tartar from the tooth surfaces and the gum line. We will blast plaque and scrape the tartar away from the tooth and clean the gums to leave your teeth feeling smooth. We will then polish the teeth to make them look clean and bright and remove surface stains.

Is a scale and polish procedure painful?

It may feel a little odd to have dental instruments in your mouth and the scraping motion may be a little uncomfortable, but this procedure is not painful and you will be encouraged to sit back and relax. If you are a nervous patient, please talk to us beforehand and we will do everything we can to help you to feel as relaxed as possible.

Scaling and Polishing in Swindon

Whether you suffer with dental health problems, you are prone to plaque build-up or you just want to give your teeth and gums a healthy treat, we recommend a visit to our fantastic hygienists. At Clifton Dental Studio, we pride ourselves on providing the very best preventative and hygiene treatment to combat issues such as tooth discolouration, bad breath and gum disease. The cleaning power of hygiene treatments is a lot stronger than just brushing at home, and in just half an hour you will be astonished by the difference it has made. As well as battling oral hygiene problems, a scale and polish will also give your mouth a deep clean, leaving you with a dazzling smile.

What is a scale and polish?

If you have issues with plaque or tartar build-up on your teeth, or you suffer from halitosis or gum disease, you may be advised to have a scale and polish. During this treatment, bacteria, tartar and plaque are removed, and your teeth are given a thorough clean. We use specially designed dental equipment to scale the teeth, enabling us to easily remove stubborn plaque deposits from the gumline, tooth surfaces and gaps between the teeth. When this has been removed, we will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth, leaving them with a smooth and glossy feel.

How often should I see a hygienist?

At Clifton Dental Studio we recommend regular hygiene sessions for all our patients, so that you can maintain the very highest standards of oral health. But if you have a high risk of oral issues, or existing problems such as gum disease, you may have to visit us rather frequently.
