Hygiene Treatment (Scale and Clean)
During a Dental Hygiene appointment, our dentist will perform a thorough check of your gums and bone condition (periodontal screening) as well as a thorough scale and clean, which involves thorough removal of the plaque, calculus (hardened plaque or ‘tartar’), and surface staining using Swiss-made EMS painless technology and Japanese stain removal advancements.
Sometimes gum problems can be resolved by simply changing toothbrushing techniques or using a professionally recommended product and tools on at-risk areas. Our dentists will work with you to show you how to take care of your teeth and gums effectively.
Regular recall visits are important for the maintenance of good oral health and the prevention of dental problems such as decay and periodontal (gum) disease.
Depending on your individual needs, your dentist may recommend a 3 monthly, 6 monthly or 12 monthly recall regime. This examination is usually incorporated into hygiene treatments, so you can get a thorough check-up and your teeth cleaned in one convenient session.
