The TCL Approach to Healthy Teeth


What is a Scale and Clean Procedure?

A scale and clean procedure, also known as a dental cleaning or prophylaxis, is a simple yet powerful dental procedure that can make a big difference in your oral health. This common procedure is carried out as part of one’s regular dental hygiene and acts as a form of preventative medicine to keep your teeth clean and healthy. When combined with other oral hygiene measures such as brushing, flossing, healthy eating and using mouthwashes, you have a holistic treatment plan that can help reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. 

During this procedure, a dental hygienist or dentist will use specialised tools to remove the plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. The dentists are working to remove tartar and calculus build-up on your teeth. We recommend having a scale and clean every six months to keep your teeth healthy and strong. 


Why is a Scale and Clean Important?


Protect Your Smile

Tooth decay and gum disease are the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. By investing in regular scale and clean procedures, you can protect your smile and keep your teeth healthy and strong. 


Early Detection of Dental Problems

During the cleaning process, the dental hygienist may identify any signs of potential dental issues such as cavities or gum inflammation. Early detection allows for timely intervention, preventing the progression of these problems.


Freshen Your Breath

Bad breath can be embarrassing and unpleasant. A scale and clean procedure can help remove the bacteria that cause bad breath, leaving you with fresher breath and a brighter smile.


Save Money

Preventative dental care is always less expensive than restorative dental care. By investing in regular scale and clean procedures, you can prevent more serious dental problems down the line and save money on costly dental procedures.


Improve Your Overall Health

Good oral health is essential to your overall health and well-being. Poor oral health has been linked to a variety of other health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. By investing in a scale and clean procedure every six months, you can improve your overall health and prevent more serious health problems down the line.


Look Great and Boost Your Self-Confidence

No single person ever dreams of having yellow or decayed teeth and an unpleasant smile. With dental scale and clean, you can help maintain the white colour of your teeth and advance your overall appearance. When you look great, you also feel great. Having a bright smile will help you find a renewed sense of self-esteem and self-confidence.

A scale and clean procedure is an essential part of your dental care routine that can help protect your smile, freshen your breath, and improve your overall health. By investing in regular dental checkups and cleanings, you can prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems, ensuring a healthy and confident smile for years to come.
