Scale & Polish at Church Street Dental and Implant Clinic Cavan
Periodontal Treatment, in some cases periodontal treatment is needed to treat advanced gum disease. At Church Street Dental Cavan our hygienists are fully qualified in deep Scale & Polish techniques with the use of local anesthetic.
Dentists recommend that teeth should be cleaned by a Dental Hygienist at least twice per year.
Dental Scale & Polish cleaning involves removing the plaque and tartar deposits from the teeth and gums. Plaque is a mixture of food, bacteria and bacterial waste products that builds up on your teeth after eating. If plaque is not removed it hardens to form tartar.
The purpose of the cleaning and polishing is basically to leave the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them and you have a better chance of keeping the teeth clean during your regular home care, leaving your teeth feeling very smooth and clean – periodontal treatment.
