Teeth are a vital part of the human body, and they must be taken care of to remain in good condition for life. From their practical use for eating and talking to their aesthetic qualities like having a lovely white smile, ProSmiles are very passionate about teeth and oral health and hygiene and understand a healthy smile celebrates a healthy lifestyle.
At ProSmiles our professional team is available to do extensive dental procedures, as well as offering a general checkup with a comprehensive scale and clean of your teeth. We thoroughly assess your teeth and use state of the art equipment to remove plaque, calculus, and staining from your teeth.
Regular brushing and flossing will not get rid of all the plaque, so it is recommended that you do this every six months to ensure that the health of your teeth is optimally maintained.
What gets removed during a scale and clean
Substances that can build up on teeth may cause further dental problems if left untreated, but with a simple scale and clean, they can be easily and painlessly removed. Plaque is a soft and sticky substance that is made up of bacteria, where calculus is an essentially hardened plaque that cannot be removed from brushing or flossing.
Staining occurs through contact with substances that can cause unflattering colours to stain the teeth, such as food debris, cigarette smoke, coffee, tea, and red wine. Although plaque can be mostly prevented by regular brushing and flossing, it can still be easily missed when growing in hard to see places, which is why a scale and clean is necessary.
