Q: What is involved in a 'scale and polish' treatment?

A: When you go for a check-up, your dentist may perform a 'scale and polish' if deemed necessary. Essentially, this is a deep clean of your mouth, where the dentist or hygienist will use a special tool to get rid of the hard build-up of tartar (calculus) then follow-up by giving the teeth a thorough polish.

Q: What is the benefit of a scale and polish treatment?

A: A major advantage of this type of treatment is that it allows the dentist to concentrate on the areas just below the gum line, behind your teeth and in the gaps in between them. These are areas which are especially difficult to reach when we brush our teeth.

Q: Will a scale and polish eliminate the risk of gum disease?

A: The scale and polish will most certainly help combat gum disease. It is very important, however, that you still do your bit by brushing properly (twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste) and flossing!
