Scale and Cleans Canley Heights

Daily brushing and flossing is not enough to remove stubborn plaque and tartar build-up.

Only a professional dental scale and clean can do that.

A professional dental scale and clean removes soft and hard plaque, and stains that cannot be removed with regular tooth brushing at home.

Scale and cleans prevents tooth decay and gum disease and is recommended each six months.

Benefits of Scale and Clean

Z Prevent Tooth Decay and Cavities

Brushing and flossing twice a day helps to remove plaque build-up, and a professional cleaning every six months is even more effective.

Z Avoid Gum Disease

Plaque doesn’t just cause tooth decay – it also damages your gums when it accumulates below the gum line. If untreated, gum disease can even lead to tooth loss.

Regular teeth cleaning decrease plaque build-up and greatly decrease the chance of this happening to you.

Z Remove Stains

Drinking coffee, tea, and wine or using tobacco products can cause staining on your teeth.

Regular tooth brushing removes some of this, but stubborn stains can remain on the teeth.

This can be removed through teeth cleaning and polishing from your dentist, and it is truly necessary to brighten your smile.

Z Prevent Bad Breath

Good oral hygiene habits are the best way to prevent halitosis or bad breath.

Brushing and flossing alone cannot help when you have an underlying dental issue such as tartar build-up. In these cases, you may struggle with bad breath despite maintaining a regular hygiene routine.

Scaling is necessary to freshen your breath and restore your confidence.

Z Improve Your General Health

It may sound odd, but regular teeth cleaning appointments can help lower the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Chronic inflammation related to gum disease can result in hardened arteries, which can cause a heart attack or stroke.

Many other unseemingly related medical conditions, from kidney disease to diabetes, can be detected in their early stages by visiting the dentist.

Z Save Money on Restorative Dentistry

One of the biggest reasons people miss routine teeth cleanings is to save money.

However, the cost coming for a dental scale and clean is far less than dental restorations or periodontal disease treatments.

A bit of preventive care helps you avoid unpleasant and potentially expensive problems in the future.

The Scale and Clean Procedure

Crack: Your Canley Heights dentist uses a scaler to crack the toughest calculus (plaque build-up) and remove it.

Together, the scaler and jet spray of water soften the calculus and remove the debris lodged between the teeth.

Clean: A manual scaler is used to clean the plaque situated in hard-to-reach areas between the teeth.

Polish: Scrubbing and polishing your teeth is the final step towards this procedure. This step protects teeth from further decay.
