What happens next?
During a dental hygiene appointment patients can expect to receive several standardised procedures such as an oral assessment, to name just one common example, in addition to a tailor-made plan to cater for their individual dental needs. Just one example of a standard service during a hygiene appointment is that of a scale and polish (also commonly referred to as a ‘cosmetic clean’).
What is a scale and polish?
A scale and polish is a common service during a dental hygiene appointment, and is typically completed within the space of minutes! Despite the scale and polish being frequently administered within a biannual check-up, many patients may be unsure of how it produces a healthier, and therefore happier smile. A scale and polish is administered by a dental hygienist who will work to remove a build-up of plaque and tartar on the surface of the teeth, this accumulates due to an excessive amount of oral bacteria within the mouth.
So how does it work?
A scale and polish is essentially a professional service which uses a combination of special brushes and dental pastes to remove calculus from the surface of the teeth, however there is more to dental hygiene than a simple cosmetic clean!
