Scale and Polish
At Walkerston Dental, we use the latest ultrasonic scaler to gently remove the plaque and tartar build up which can form in the nooks and crannies of your teeth. Gum disease is usually painless and therefore is one of the most prevalent conditions affecting many people. The consequences of not diagnosing and treating gum disease at the right time is devastating leading to early tooth loss. Also, a lot of research is pointing to the fact that gum disease is an important risk factor for cardio-vascular disease and other systemic conditions.
It is recommended to get a thorough clean done at least every six months to a year. If you have chronic gum disease, it is recommended to get a clean done more frequently. With our gentle scaling machines, we often get compliments on how different it feels during treatment.
