Prevent Tooth Decay and Gum Disease with Scale and Clean

It’s no secret that regular dental cleanings are essential for maintaining oral health, but many people avoid them because of the cost or time commitment. 

Even if you brush and floss every day, it’s impossible to remove all the plaque and tartar from your teeth. Over time, this build-up can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

At Mundaring Dental Centre, we offer a professional scale and clean that is designed to eliminate plaque and tartar that cannot be removed with routine brushing at home. This dental procedure will help prevent costly treatments in the future. Plus, our team of friendly professionals will make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed during your visit. Have that healthy smile today and let your smile shine through. Get in touch with us at 08 9295 2577 and see what difference we can make.

Gum disease doesn’t often cause discomfort or reveal noticeable symptoms, making it challenging to identify if you need deep cleaning. Fortunately, your dentist can evaluate your gums and assess if you need a scale and clean when you visit for a check-up or routine cleaning.

The following are some warning signals to keep an eye out for:

  • Receding gums
  • Halitosis (persistent bad breath)
  • You have a terrible taste in your mouth
  • Presents sensitive gums
  • Bleeding or red gum

You may also feel as if parts of your teeth are loose. Furthermore, if your gums hurt when you chew or brush, you may have gum disease, which needs a comprehensive cleaning.
It’s worth remembering that, although regularly visiting your dentist may seem like a hassle; it could result in lower dental costs and fewer extensive treatments down the road.

Most people with healthy teeth and gums require only twice-yearly dental examinations and cleanings. Still, depending on the severity of your gum condition, you may need scaling and root planing at least twice a year or more.
Plaque build-up is usually challenging to remove without the help of a professional, which is why regular dental cleanings are so important. If left unchecked, it can lead to tooth decay, cavities, gum tissue deterioration, gum disease, and other complications. Periodontitis, often known as gum disease, causes swelling and bleeding in the mouth and can result in tooth loss. Furthermore, there could be drawbacks such as gingivitis, poor breath, and can effect other organs like the heart, too.

What you can expect from a dental scale and clean is a painless process that effectively leaves a fresh and clean sensation in your mouth. Many people hate having their teeth cleaned. It’s easy to understand their concern, given the prodding, strange noises, and frequent jaw pain. However, for most people, tooth cleaning is easy and stress-free.

Knowing exactly what is going on during the process can help relieve dental anxiety and allow you to enjoy the minty-fresh results to the greatest extent.

A comprehensive oral examination: A dentist may begin the cleaning process with a physical examination of your entire mouth. The dentist checks your teeth and gums with a small mirror to look for symptoms of gingivitis (inflamed gums) or other potential problems.

Plaque and tartar removal: The dentist uses a scaler to remove plaque and tartar from around your gum line and between your teeth, using a small mirror to assist them. There will be scraping, which is expected. The more tartar there is in your mouth, the longer it will take them to scrape a particular area.

Cleaning with gritty toothpaste: After your teeth have been thoroughly cleaned, the dentist will brush them with a high-powered electric brush that makes a grinding noise. While it may sound frightening, it is a fantastic way to get a thorough cleaning and eliminate any tartar left behind by the scaler.

Most professional cleanings use toothpaste that tastes and smells like conventional toothpaste, but you can typically pick your favorite flavour. However, it does have a gritty texture that gently cleans your teeth. This tooth polishing is considered safe to undertake twice a year if done by a professional. However, don’t be as rough on your teeth at home, as this will wear down the enamel.

Professional flossing: There is nothing like a professional flossing session, whether you floss at home or not. Your dentist can reach deep between your teeth and detect weak spots where you may bleed at the gums. This may seem optional if you floss at home, but having a professional floss your teeth removes any remaining plaque or toothpaste from earlier in the cleaning procedure.

Rinsing: Following that, you rinse your mouth to remove any particles. Your dentist will generally offer you a rinse, including liquid fluoride.

Utilizing fluoride treatment: A fluoride treatment is the final step in the cleaning process. This treatment is utilized as a preventative measure for your teeth for several months to help fight cavities.

The dentist may inquire as to the flavour you prefer. The foamy gel (or sometimes a sticky substance) will next be placed in a mouthpiece that fits over your teeth. It is typically applied to your teeth for one minute. Fluoride varnish is also placed on the teeth using a tiny brush in addition to the foamy gel. Since fluoride varnish hardens when it comes into contact with saliva, you can eat and drink straight away.

A dental check-up and scale and clean might take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment you require. If you have no dental problems and your teeth are in good condition, your dentist will simply clean them, apply fluoride, and you’ll be on your way in a matter of minutes.

No, the scale and cleaning procedure are actually pain-free. However, you may experience some strange sensations in your mouth. This might include a scraping sensation or a tickling feeling in your gums. A numbing gel may be used if you are terribly nervous about having dental work done. In case you are hesitant and afraid about the scale and polish being painful, then speak to our friendly receptionist when you book your appointment, and they will be able to let our dentist know about it; rest assured that your teeth are in good hands as we take a gentle approach in any procedure we make in our dental practice.

Depending on your dental needs and plaque build-up, a routine dental check-up with a scale and cleaning treatment costs between $220 and $280 per appointment. On the other hand, if an x-ray is required, the cost might be anywhere from $300 to $390.

A general dental extras policy typically aids in the payment of preventative treatment treatments such as scaling and cleaning. However, what is included in your policy is determined by your level of coverage. It’s wise to check with your health insurance carrier to see if you’re covered.
