What is a Scale and Polish Treatment?

During a Scale and Polish we remove hard deposits and stains from your teeth and smooth all the surfaces of your teeth so that you can keep them clean more easily. When the surfaces of your teeth are smooth, plaque does not stick to your teeth so readily. This hard deposit on your teeth is called calculus – and it looks a lot like the scale on the inside of your kettle!

Why should you remove “Calculus”?

It contains a lot of bacteria, which we all know causes bad breath. It can also attack your gums and cause bleeding and swollen gums. As time goes on this can result in bone loss round the tooth – also known as periodontal disease.

What to expect from a Scale and Polish Session at Thurloe Street Dental?

Our highly experienced hygienist will:
• Remove the scale and stains from your teeth. It is usually not painful at all but if you do experience sensitivity we will put a numbing local anaesthetic cream on the area to desensitise the gum and tooth.
• After the stains and calculus are removed, we will polish your teeth to a high gloss with a special polishing paste and a special rotating brush.
• Show you practical and easy ways to maintain your oral hygiene.
