DIY Dental!

The temptation to save a few dollars by skipping out on dental work can sometimes be too much to resist, and we’re often guilty of trying to solve the problem at home for that very reason. But certain kinds of dental work are delicate and critical, and trying to DIY at home can make matters worse. This is especially true in the case of scaling dental cleaning, a procedure that should ideally be carried out twice a year.

When done professionally, a good dental cleaning will remove the build-up of potentially damaging plaque deposits behind teeth. It can help remove light stains on the surface of teeth. Also, it might go a long way towards the prevention of cavities, gum disease, and other oral ailments. However, that same treatment when done at home with home cleaning kits and incorrect tools can damage your teeth’s enamel and chip away at the surface of the teeth.

Don't DIY Dental at home

A lot of people have their teeth professionally cleaned. And prepared for the next time they visit the dentist, but for some, it poses a risk of DIY dental work.
These are the people who want to save money by doing it themselves. Although they may think they can save money, in reality, they put their health and the enamel of their teeth at risk.

If you're not sure about taking a trip to the dentist, you're not alone. Fear of dentists and dental procedures is widespread. With many Australians avoiding dental visits and treatment.
Many people opt to DIY dental treatment at home for several reasons:
They feel at ease doing so, don't want to expose themselves or their families to unnecessary risks. And don't necessarily trust that the dental professional will do a good job.

Misusing dental Tools

Not only have dental tools meant to be used professionally, but also, the dental instruments meant to be used for DIY dental care at home in the wrong hands can result in more damage than good.

Can I fill my own teeth?

If you are a licenced dentist, you might. But still need professional help.
If you are not a dentist and brave and stupid enough, yes, you can fill your own teeth.
You can even make a Tik Tok video about it.
Do your own research on how risky it is to fill your own teeth.

Professional teeth cleaning and scaling Melbourne

At Gorgeous Smiles, we offer gentle, professional dental teeth cleaning services. Our skilled dentists will ensure you are comfortable throughout your treatment and will tailor a plan to suit your needs. Wondering ‘how much is a teeth cleaning session going to cost?’. At Gorgeous Smiles, we offer affordable teeth cleaning so you can smile with confidence.

At a Gorgeous Smiles teeth cleaning appointment, you will be given a FREE dental check-up and examination. We have our patients’ best interest at heart, and cannot stress the importance of regular dental check-ups and cleaning that can save you a lot of time and money in the long run.

Once our patient has been given a total rundown of the treatment he or she will be undergoing, we begin the process of scaling. Done with careful precision, it helps to remove plaque, calculus, and tartar from the teeth. All of which can be damaging to the teeth if allowed to build up. The gums are then thoroughly cleaned. Gums that are buried under layers of bacteria and plaque lose their capacity to absorb nutrients from food, so a good cleaning can help ensure not only healthy gums but a healthy body overall.

Once the scaling is done, we offer our patients a FREE Fluoride treatment. This helps reduce the occurrence of cavities, improves sensitivity in teeth and makes them stronger, giving you fresh breath in the bargain.
