Scale and Polish

Not only do we care for your teeth, we care for your gums and surrounding structures that hold the teeth in place also. Our skilled Dental Hygienist cleans, scales and polishes teeth to remove staining, plaque, calculus and food debris, helping you achieve a bright and pleasant smile but also helping you to achieve optimum gum and bone health. The gums, ligaments and bone holding your teeth in place can suffer from infection and inflammation which are signs of gum disease. If not maintained the gums and surrounding structure can break down and cause bad breath, sensitivity, food traps, pain and can cause teeth to become loose. We help to clear even from minor to major infections and keep your gums in tip-top shape whilst removing those stubborn stains caused by smoking, wine, tea, coffee, spices and chlorine for those swimmers!
