Teeth Cleaning

Teeth Cleaning, Melbourne

A healthy mouth is an essential part of a healthy body since the oral cavity is the start of our digestive system and is one of the most vascular parts of the body. In fact, research has shown a link between oral health and heart health as it is thought that bacteria from dental plaque can travel through the bloodstream, and settle on coronary arteries and on valves.

As soon as you brush and floss your teeth, bacteria will begin to form a layer of plaque which with time, can harden and form a layer of calculus on the teeth. Having your teeth cleaned regularly helps to maintain optimal oral and systemic health as it can be difficult to remove all the bacteria off your teeth on your own. A regular visit to Brunswick East Dental Studio for a thorough clean will ensure your mouth receives the care it needs for optimal health.

What to expect:

At Brunswick East Dental Studio, we offer a wide range of preventive dental services including teeth cleaning. 

Teeth cleaning, often referred to as a scale and polish, is a common procedure used to remove plaque, calculus and stains from the teeth. The process is integral in ensuring your teeth and gums remain shiny, healthy and pain-free.  A scale and polish is usually performed at your regular preventive care check-up appointment. However, if it has been a while since your last examination, you may require a more thorough cleaning process called scaling and root planing in order to return the gums to their optimal health.

Our dentists do everything they can to ensure the process is comfortable for you. Teeth cleaning is generally pain-free and they’ll talk you through each step as it’s being carried out. You can expect the following:

  • A physical examination – your dental professional will check your teeth, gums and mouth for any problems or signs of potential problems.
  • The removal of plaque and tartar – small instruments will be used to scrape away plaque and tartar. The more regularly you brush and floss, the quicker this step will be!
  • A deep clean – your dental professional will then use a high-powered electric brush and toothpaste with a gritty consistency to thoroughly scrub your teeth. This also includes a professional flossing process.
  • Rinsing – rinse out your mouth to get rid of any debris.

Depending on the condition of your mouth and teeth, there may also be some additional steps.

Why is professional teeth cleaning so important?

We recommend you visit us regularly for preventative dental care such as teeth cleaning for a number of reasons. Mostly, taking a proactive interest in your own oral health could help reduce your chances of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other serious issues. When a dental problem such as these do arise, you may require more complicated treatments such as porcelain crowns or gum disease treatment.

Don’t wait until you experience toothache, bleeding or other issues! Instead, take preventative measures to look after your long-term oral health with the dentists at Brunswick East Dental Studio. We’re passionate about delivering the best possible treatment and will be happy to provide advice on the best cleaning program for you.
