SCALE AND POLISH
As the name suggests we will scrape away the scale which has built up on your teeth. This is similar to that which affects your kettle or shower head.
If left this can build up to quite large amounts which will increase your risk of
halitosis - bad breath
poor oral hygiene
To complete the process we can then polish your teeth to remove superficial stains. A scale and polish is usually intended as a preventative measure for healthy patients who want to keep the teeth clean, but can be part of an initial gum treatment regime.
