Professional Cleaning

At McCullough Dental Centre our priority is the health of our patients…

To retain a healthy mouth we offer professional cleaning to eliminate scale (calculus) and plaque from teeth. Scale is a hard deposit that our patients cannot remove at home. To achieve good oral health it is necessary to get a regular clean by a trained professional. At McCullough Dental Centre we can reduce the risks associated with tartar and plaque damage which often leaves the mouth susceptible to:

  • Tooth discolouration
  • Caries and tooth decay
  • Gum disease (gingivitis/periodontitis)
  • Gum recession
  • Sensitive teeth

The inside of your mouth can show potential oral health hazards imminent in the future…

One of the leading causes for tooth and oral health problems is bacteria. Essentially, the dominant function of the mouth is to chew food so that it can be properly digested. Good and bad bacteria are present in the mouth. Together bacteria and saliva make plaque which is responsible for decay and gum problems. Plaque slowly builds up on the tooth surface and is easily removed with brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once a day and using a fluoridated toothpaste. The fluoride will help to strengthen tooth enamel. Unfortunately, in the event of plaque build-up that is neglected over time, it can solidify and turn into scale which is hard and impossible to get rid of with brushing. Regular professional dental cleaning is necessary to remove this scale and maintain tooth and gum health.

Taking preventive measures with your teeth can make a huge difference…

Cleaning teeth is something that is often forgotten as a daily necessity and unfortunately, forgetting can make a huge difference in terms of the safety and wellbeing of your teeth. In order to keep our teeth as healthy as they possibly can be, it is important to maintain a daily oral hygiene routine to eliminate the risks of tooth decay and oral health problems. If cleaning is neglected for too long, then it can become difficult to remove plaque and stains from your teeth. At McCullough Dental Centre we recommend professional cleaning to ensure that harmful scale and plaque is removed from your teeth before it starts to cause oral health problems such as tooth decay or gum disease.

By undertaking a professional clean at McCullough Dental Centre you can ensure that your oral health will receive the proper care and consideration needed. With our years of experience we understand the debilitating effects of scale and plaque; as such, we will strive to clean your mouth to the highest standards.
