Scale and polish

To remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) that can build up on your teeth, your dentist may suggest that you have your teeth scaled and polished. This is a professional clean carried out by our Dental Hygienist. The hygienist will scrape away plaque and tartar from your teeth using a special instrument, and polish your teeth to remove marks or stains. If a lot of plaque or tartar has built up you may need to have more than one visit.

Root planning

In some cases of gum disease or periodontitis, root planning (debridement) may be required. This is a deep clean under the gums that removes bacteria from the roots of your teeth.
