The purpose of a hygienist appointment is to ensure all the calculus and tartar is removed from the teeth that is fully remove by brushing. This removal ensures minimal or no teeth decay. It is the decay that leads to fillings, root canal treatments and loss of teeth in the longterm. Therefore, investing a little bit of time and money in hygine appointments translates into preventing these unsightly and expensive eventualities.

What is a scale and polish?

Scaling removes hard calcified tartar otherwise known as calculus. This is calcified plaque that looks unsightly and makes the tooth feel rough. It is removed with an ultrasonic vibrating tip that descales the tooth surface followed by polishing to smooth the surface of tooth and remove superficial stains.

Why is maintaining dental hygiene so Important?

As anyone can tell you, prevention is better than cure. The cause of all things evil in your mouth is decay and poor gum health which comes from poor hygiene.
Decay leads to holes in your teeth and subsequently your bank balance. If you were to safeguard against the decay and therefore the holes, toothache, fillings or worse (root canal treatments and extractions) would be a nightmare you never had to experience. Investing a little time and money in regular hygiene translates into fewer problems in the future.
