What's Involved In A Scale & Clean Appointment?

As a result of eating food, drinking beverages, or just having bacteria in your mouth 24 hours a day, plaque and tartar can accumulate on teeth. A thorough teeth cleaning is important because the accumulation of plaque and tartar on the surface of your teeth might cause tooth decay or periodontal disease.

Teeth cleaning refers to the removal of tissue or plaque buildup from the surfaces of your teeth. In order to effectively remove plaque and tartar, your dentist will likely need to use instruments such as a toothbrush, electric polisher, or dental scaler. Your dentist may also use ultrasonic vibrations to suction-clean your gums and teeth in order to remove plaque and tartar that has collected between the gum line and teeth.

What You Need To Know

FAQ About Scale & Clean Treatments

The cost of teeth cleaning varies and is dependent on factors such as the location, qualifications, and experience of the dentist, as well as what other services they offer. The average cost will typically fall anywhere between $200-$400for a dental cleaning. Factors that can be taken into consideration in determining this cost include how experienced the dentist is, how much time they are able to devote to you on any given visit, whether or not you have private health insurance.
The time it takes for teeth cleaning treatment with a dentist varies - it all depends on the number of teeth being examined and cleaned. If you have healthy gums and no cavities, then treatment can be as quick as 30 minutes. However, if cavities or gum disease is present, an hour-long visit isn't unusual.
The frequency of teeth cleaning can vary depending on many factors, including your age and life habits such as eating habits, smoking, and the type of work you do.

The frequency will be higher if you’re a smoker as smoking can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Smoking can also decrease your sense of taste or smell which in turn can make your mouth more susceptible to tooth decay.

Go to the dentist at least once a year for teeth cleaning. This is because they will be able to detect cavities and other dental problems from the very start. This way, you will have more time to take care of your teeth and prevent major problems from occurring.
