A scale and clean with a My Implant Dentist dentist can help to improve the health of your gums. Not only can we help keep your teeth clean and cavity-free, but we also help save money on dental treatments in the future.
Although we provide the cheapest dental implants in South Perth, Ellenbrook, Mindarie and Belmont, we’d much rather our patients kept all their pearly whites!
Even if you’re diligent with your brushing and flossing, it’s important to have your teeth cleaned professionally by a dentist at least once every six months. A thorough scale and clean will get rid of plaque, calculus, and staining from tea, coffee and red wine, so your teeth can look and feel their best. It will also help prevent gum disease.
Your My Implant Dentist dentist will use an ultrasonic cleaning device around your gum line which vibrates and loosens any large areas of calculus. Water is sprayed over the area to wash away any debris.
The My Implant Dentist dentist then works around each tooth with a pick and scaler tool to scrape away any remaining calculus deposits and smooth the surface of your teeth.
For small areas of decay or heavy staining, air abrasion (a jet of compressed air) may be used.
Your teeth will then be given a good polish.
If you generally have healthy teeth and gums, the dental clean shouldn’t be painful. If you have sensitive teeth a local anaesthetic can be administered to make the procedure more comfortable.
