33Your professional scale and clean is an easy way to maintain healthy teeth and gums. We’ve outlined five benefits of regularly seeing our hygiene team.

  1. Enjoy brighter and shinier teeth. Over time calculus can build up on your teeth and this hard substance can look yellow. Your professional scaling and cleaning removes all hardened calculus before your teeth are carefully polished, lifting some surface stains.
  2. Better gum health. Calculus contains infection-causing bacteria and regularly removing it reduces your risk of gum disease.
  3. Fresh breath. After having your teeth professionally cleaned you will probably notice your mouth feels extremely clean and this has a great effect on your breath.
  4. Protect your general health. Gum disease has been linked to many serious health conditions including diabetes, heart disease and even dementia and certain cancers. A professional scaling and cleaning is an effortless way to reduce your risk.
  5. Preventative care is cheaper. Over time, it’s far cheaper to prevent dental disease then to treat it and attending regular hygiene appointments helps to reduce your dental bills.
