FAQ About Our Dental Clinic In Armadale

We understand that you may have questions when seeing a new dentist for the first time. If your concern isn’t addressed
below, please feel free to contact our practice. One of our friendly team members will be happy to assist you.
The time it takes to clean teeth varies according to the number of teeth examined and cleaned. Typically, a routine dental check-up with a scale and clean treatment takes 30 minutes to one hour.

In order to prevent tooth decay or periodontal disease, it is essential to clean your teeth thoroughly. The dentist will usually begin by removing any calcified plaque deposits from the teeth. They may use instruments such as a toothbrush, an electric polisher, or a dental scaler to effectively remove plaque and tartar. 

Additionally, your dentist may suction-clean your gums and teeth using ultrasonic vibrations to dislodge plaque and tartar that have accumulated between the gum line and teeth. Then, they will polish your teeth after the dental cleaning.

After we scale and clean your teeth, our highly experienced dentists in Armadale will provide you with guidelines and tips on maintaining proper oral hygiene.

A scale and clean procedure is entirely painless. If you are experiencing discomfort during the procedure, your dentist can recommend several options to make it more comfortable. Your dentist might use numbing gel to ease the sensitivity in some cases.

A number of factors affect how often you should have a scale and clean, including your age and lifestyle habits, such as eating, drinking, and smoking. You’ll need to visit the dentist for a scale and clean much more often if you smoke, since smoking causes tooth decay and gum disease. It can also reduce your sense of taste or smell, which, in turn, can make your mouth more susceptible to tooth decay.

We recommend visiting your dentist at least twice a year for a scale and clean. They will be able to detect cavities and other dental problems as early as possible and give you more time to take care of your teeth and avoid significant problems.

Depending on the severity of the problem and the amount of plaque build-up, the cost of a regular dental check-up that includes regular scaling and cleaning is typically between $200 and $400 per appointment.
Typically, a general dental extras cover helps pay for preventative treatment services, including scale and clean. However, your level of cover will determine what is included in your policy. It is best to contact your health fund provider to determine your coverage.
All dentists, including general dentists, can perform a scale and clean.
