Scale and Clean
Regular scale & clean is essential to remove stains and calculus build up that develops on your teeth. Teeth cleaning is done as part of a regular dental check up. During your appointment, Dr Singh will check your teeth, gums, overall mouth and also evaluate your brushing and flossing by checking in between your teeth while cleaning. After examining and cleaning your teeth, Dr Singh will recommend a personalized advice on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums to avoid long term problems.
Don’t wait to see your dentist until you have dental issues. Most of the problems can be detected and diagnosed, before you start experiencing pain or discomfort. To remove the tartar and build up, your dentist will first use an Ultrasonic Scaler and then handheld instruments. After removing the build-up, the dentist will polish the teeth and make the teeth surfaces clean and smooth. Polishing teeth removes stains and minor imperfections on teeth surface and reduces future plaque build up. Your Dentist will advice you how often you need a scale and clean – 6 monthly or yearly. Professional dental cleaning is an addition to a good daily oral care routine. You should still brush and floss your teeth twice a day, choose healthy foods, avoid sugary acidic drinks and smoking.
