A regular examination with a scale and clean is one of the easiest ways to keep your teeth clean and cavity-free. This routine procedure involves removing the build-up of plaque and tartar that is unable to be removed with everyday brushing and flossing to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
The thorough treatment will be carried out by one of our dedicated dentists or hygienists at our General Dentistry in Perth and will take no longer than approximately 45 minutes. Did you know that your next scale and clean could be covered completely by your private health insurance? Contact Alpha Dental for more information.
When do you need a scale and clean general dental care?
Typically, your emergency dentist in Perth will attend to the following:
- The accumulation of plaque and calculus that regular oral hygiene cannot eliminate.
- Stains on teeth caused by smoking, coffee, tea, or red wine.
- Implement preventive measures to sustain optimal oral health. This is usually done every 6 months or sooner.
