Scale & Clean in Caroline Springs

Being proactive about preventative dental care is one of the best things you can do for your health. It’s important that you take good care of your teeth so they don’t decay, and our dental office in Caroline Springs can help you maintain good oral health.

What is a Scale & Clean?

Bacteria-laden plaque is the main cause of gum disease. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and other serious dental health problems. 

Regular dental cleanings by your dentist are recommended to prevent dental decay, but the majority of people only go to the dentist when they are experiencing pain or if there is a problem with their teeth.

It is crucial to see a dentist on a regular basis to maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. That is why Magical Smiles offers affordable preventative dental care with Scale & Cleans. We will remove all calcified plaque from the teeth so that there will be no place for bacteria to attach themselves or food debris to get stuck between them. 

What Happens During a Scale & Clean Procedure

Prophylactic (Regular) Cleanings

We recommend a dental scale and clean every six months. These routine scales and cleans are designed to help prevent severe gum disease and manage minor issues such as gingivitis.

Planning a regular dental cleaning service twice per year allows us to intercept dental problems at their earliest stages. That way, if you need dental treatment, it’s less invasive to your teeth and more affordable in the long run.

A prophylactic cleaning involves the removal of plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth and beneath your gumline. The final steps would be flossing between your teeth and cleaning them to remove surface stains. 


Deep Cleanings

If it has been more than a year since your last visit, you may have accumulated significant build-up, which would require deep cleaning. Before debriding your tartar underneath your gums, we will first numb them with a local anaesthetic.

Deep cleanings usually require two or more appointments that can take up to 2 hours each and involve tooth scaling and root planing.

The dentist scales teeth to remove stubborn plaque and tartar build-up below the gumline during the tooth scaling procedure. Then, dental plaque and tartar that form on the roots of your teeth are removed by your dentist during the root planing procedure. In doing so, your gums will be able to reconnect with your teeth, helping to reduce the distance between your gums and teeth.


Laser Cleanings

Are your gums red, inflamed, or do they bleed easily? Then, a laser cleaning might be what you need.

Active periodontal disease causes tooth loss and is dangerous to your overall health.  We will numb your mouth during a laser cleaning, perform a deep dental cleaning service, then use light amplified technology to eradicate active infection under your gum tissues.

Laser treatments speed healing and facilitate gum reattachment in areas of tissue loss. It’s an advanced dental procedure that can mean the difference in saving your smile. LANAP (laser-assisted new attachment procedure) can help patients with periodontal disease avoid permanent tooth loss. Not only does it destroy dangerous bacteria, but it also stimulates bone regeneration around your teeth.

Scale & Clean FAQs

Talk to your dentist about how frequently you should have your teeth scaled and cleaned. As a general rule, healthy gums and teeth should be scaled and cleaned every six months. You should, however, have a dental scale and clean at least every three to four months if you suffer from severe gum disease.
A dental scale and clean treatment typically costs between $230 and $450 per visit, depending on your specific needs and plaque build-up.
Keeping teeth clean can prevent gum disease and bad breath from recurring. That’s why daily teeth cleaning is essential. However, regular brushing and dental flossing alone are not always enough to remove stubborn plaque from your teeth. Eventually, it will harden and can only be removed by a dentist or a hygienist, so getting a professional scale and clean at least once a year is vital. Excessive tartar and plaque build-up can cause tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, and other dental problems.
A dental scale and clean is simple and painless. If you are experiencing discomfort, let your dentist know so they can recommend several options that can make the process more comfortable for you. To alleviate some of the sensitivity, your dentist can use numbing gel.
Even though no teeth whitening is involved, scaling and cleaning can make teeth appear brighter and whiter.
A routine scale and clean can help prevent the development of tooth decay and gum disease in people with healthy mouths. Deep cleaning is beneficial for periodontitis or gum disease patients since it increases the odds of successful dental treatment and prevents the inflammation from recurring. If untreated, chronic periodontal disease can cause loose teeth, bone loss, gum tissue loss, and tooth loss.
