Teeth Cleaning and Scaling

Why Professional Teeth Cleaning?

At Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry, we are committed to taking care of your teeth and gum health through our exceptional Dental Cleaning Melbourne service.

While everyone is aware of the importance of caring for your teeth, they often do not understand how importance gum health is. In fact, one of the major reasons for teeth loss in adulthood is gum disease, not tooth decay. We hope this page will be useful in providing more information and tips regarding gum health as well as teeth cleaning and scaling.

The Importance of Gum Care

Your gum is covering the bone which houses the teeth. Therefore, if the gum is ill, the bone will get resorbed and the teeth will be lost.
Ill gum causes very bad breath
What you eat is going through your mouth, which means having infection spread into your body if you do not take care of it. Regular dental cleaning will lower the risk of so many systemic diseases like; systemic diseases stroke and heart disease.
The white film on your teeth called plaque, if not removed regularly, can cause cavities on teeth.

How does professional teeth cleaning treatment work?

There is a FREE dental check-up and examination included in every teeth cleaning at Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry. Because we always want the best for our patients, and having your teeth checked and cleaned regularly will save you time and money in the long run.

After explaining to you what is happening and what needs to be done in the future, we start the scaling, which is the procedure of removing the plaques and tartar from your teeth.

Gum that is buried under layers of bacteria, plaque and tartar cannot take all the nutrients from food and help from toothpaste as it cannot reach them.

In order to have healthier, less sensitive and stronger teeth with fewer cavities, we recommend semi-regular fluoride treatments.

Gorgeous Smiles offers you a FREE Fluoride treatment at the end of the session to make sure you have a fresh and healthy gum.

How often to have dental scaling and cleaning?

Usually, teeth cleaning is recommended twice per year. For those of you with gum disease, we would highly recommend having your teeth cleaning done every 3-4 months.

Remember, every month that passes, the plaque and calculus on your teeth will be double the amount of last month so having them cleaned regularly will help you maintain a healthy oral environment for life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do my teeth get so much tartar when I am great at brushing and flossing them?

The calculus and tartar come from your own saliva. The accumulation of calculus is usually behind lower front teeth and on the side of upper molars, the reason being you have salivary ducts bringing saliva out to your oral cavity right in those areas.

No one can clean the tartar on their own by brushing them hard, you are only hurting your gum and probably causing Gum Recession in the future. Even dentists need to go to another dentist for their dental cleaning.
