Maintain Healthy Teeth With A Scale and Clean In Perth
We all know that the best way to maintain healthy teeth is through regular brushing and flossing. However, it cannot remove hardened plaque or tartar.
Many people don’t realise that the most common causes of tooth decay are not sugary foods or drinks, but plaque and tartar on your teeth. This can only be removed by a dental professional during a scale and clean appointment.
Maylands Dental Centre offers an affordable, high-quality scale and clean service. A scale and clean will eliminate plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas of your mouth that are impossible to reach with regular toothbrush. We will use specialised instruments to remove plaque build-up on your teeth, as well as polish away stains caused by coffee or tea drinking. By booking an appointment at least once every six months, you’ll ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles. Contact us today at 08 9370 5464 to schedule an appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions
A dental cleaning procedure involves cleaning around the gum line on the back and front of your teeth to remove plaque and tartar. Usually, the dentist will begin by removing any calcified plaque deposits stuck on the teeth.
A scaling device, such as an ultrasonic scaler, can help loosen and remove sticky substances. This is combined with a micro-spraying of cool water to remove plaque from between your teeth as well as food debris.
After the dental cleaning, your dentist will polish them. A slow-speed handpiece is used for polishing, which features a soft rubber cup that spins at the end. Prophylaxis paste is scooped into the cup and swirled around on the teeth to make them smooth and glossy.
After the scale and clean, your dentist will provide dental health care tips and instructions to help you maintain good oral hygiene. You may also opt for an additional fluoride treatment.
We often see dental anxiety preventing people from getting the dental treatment they need, resulting in the worsening of their existing conditions. To avoid this, we offer the option of sedation dentistry with the use of IV sedation, administered and supervised by a qualified, experienced, and medically trained anaesthetist.
The anaesthetist uses sedative drugs (local anaesthetic, general anaesthetic) and pain-relieving drugs to put you into a calm, relaxed state while you undergo dental treatment, which is often known as “conscious sedation.”
Oral sedation can be taken the night before or an hour before your dental procedure, depending on the level of sedation needed. Additionally, we provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for individuals who wish to have a continual boost throughout the dental procedure.
The average price of a regular dental check-up that includes a regular scale and clean treatment is typically between $200 and $275 per appointment, depending on the severity of the problem and the plaque build-up. If an x-ray is needed, the cost could range between $300 and $400.
