A professional scale and polish clean with the dental hygienist is a fundamental part of a thorough oral hygiene regime. The hygienist is thoroughly trained and skilled to provide the teeth with a deep clean, give oral hygiene advice but also remove soft plaque deposits from the surfaces of the teeth where cleaning has been missed.
Once the teeth have been descaled, they will look cleaner, feel smoother and the breath will appear fresher.
The final stage of the cleaning process is to polish the teeth with a gentle tooth scrub which removes any staining from dietary tea, coffee and red wine or smoking.
The difficult to access areas between the teeth can be finished off with polishing strips which are ‘flossed’ between the teeth to remove any remaining stains.
