Scale and Clean

Scale and Clean is included under General Dental.

A Scale and Clean or ‘teeth cleaning’ is undertaken by a dentist or dental hygienist to remove the plaque and calculus/tartar deposits that have built up on the teeth, over time.

Ultrasonic equipment and fine hand tools are used to remove these deposits without harming the teeth. Once clean, teeth are polished. This type of dental care is preventative and should be in addition to daily brushing and flossing.

You might need a Scale and Clean if you...

  • Have plaque or calculus/tartar on your teeth that can’t be removed by brushing and flossing
  • Want to take preventative measures to care for your teeth
  • Your teeth are stained from cigarette smoke
  • Your teeth are stained from drinks such as coffee, tea or red wine
