Scale and clean
Dental health maintenance
A scale and clean is recommended every 6 months to remove plaque and calculus from your teeth. We follow our cleans with fluoride or tooth mousse to strengthen your teeth. A regular scale and clean will improve your overall oral health and also help prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
Our procedure is generally pain free but if you have sensitive teeth we can offer you pain management if needed to feel more at ease. If you have a personal or family history of gum disease or scale and calculus build up, we can discuss more frequent cleans to help prevent inflammation and the onset or progression of gum disease. If you have private health cover, you will most likely be entitled to a free scale and clean every 6 months so be sure to check out your policy prior to booking in.
