How is a scale and polish carried out?
This treatment is carried out in 2 steps. In the first part the hygienist will remove any plaque or tartar build up from the surfaces of your teeth, including all the areas you can’t reach with normal brushing.
After this it’s time for the polish. This removes surface stains and leaves your teeth shiny and smooth. A smooth surface not only feels nice, it can also help stop plaque from building up again.
