At Brook House Dental Practice our dentists carry out all your oral hygiene care themselves. We will provide regular cleaning and polishing therapies and advice as required to ensure that you keep your gums healthy and teeth clean.
Scale and Polish
A routine scale and polish involves using a ultrasonic scaler to remove hard deposits of calculus and stains from the teeth. These are the deposits that have built up over a period of time and harbour bacteria which can cause gum disease and bad breath. It cannot be removed with your toothbrush.
Regular visits can assist and educate you to ensure that you are following all the correct procedures to look after and monitor the build up of plaque within your mouth, which can eventually lead to gum disease and even tooth loss.
You will be shown how to remove plaque successfully yourself, cleaning all surfaces of your teeth thoroughly and effectively.
