What Is A Scale & Polish?

Scale & polish, also known as a hygiene check up, is the process of removing tough stains or tartar build up that cannot be removed by regular brushing. Tartar builds up on your teeth if bacteria is present, this can have greater complications in the future.

Charlotte is highly trained in scale & polish techniques which is guaranteed to improve your overall oral health. Treatment isn’t painful and can be performed within 20 minutes depending on the case.

Why Should I Get A Hygiene Check Up?

Hygiene check ups are recommended as part of a healthy oral routine. We recommend you book in to see our hygienist every 3 to 4 months to ensure your teeth stay clean and healthy, reducing the chase of you needing expensive treatment in the future.

If you currently have stained teeth or tartar build up this could lead to future complications such as gum disease of tooth decay. Catching these symptoms early can lower your chance of needing future expensive dental procedures.

Who needs Hygiene check ups?

  • You have stained teeth.
  • You have tartar build up.
  • You have bleeding gums when you brush.
  • You haven’t visited a dentist in over 6 months.

Keep It Fresh!

We recommend a scale and polish 4 times a year to reduce the risk of gum disease. Having your teeth professionally cleaned will remove tough stains and plaque build up, that cannot be removed from standard brushing and flossing. The key benefits after treatment are:

  • Patients have a brighter smile.
  • Patients have a healthier smile.
  • Patients have better smelling breath.
  • Patients can smile again.
  • Patients feel a surge in confidence!
