Frequently Asked Questions About Scale & Clean
Getting your teeth scaled and cleaned is done by your dentist during your regular visit. In this cleaning process, plaque and tartar build-up are removed from your gum line and teeth using an ultrasonic scaler. Additionally, fluoride varnish can be applied after the cleaning procedure.
Your dentist may need to administer a local anaesthetic to relieve any discomfort during the dental treatment if you are concerned about pain.
Root planing is a common treatment for moderate to severe gum disease. It is also used to treat chronic periodontitis, which is a long-term infection of the gums. The procedure involves deep cleaning the teeth to remove subgingival bacteria using advanced tools.
A dentist uses root planing to remove plaque and tartar build-up on the roots of teeth where an infection has affected the bones. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on the teeth. It can harden into tartar or calculus over time. Tartar and calculus are difficult to remove with daily brushing and flossing and can cause gum disease if not removed.
