Professional Dental Scaling in Singapore

To keep a healthy smile for life, routine dental care, along with daily brushing and flossing, goes hand in hand. Therefore we recommend you to book with us for a scale and polish every 6 months. During the dental scaling, we will screen for tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancer. At times, x-rays may also be taken to detect hidden caries or bone lesions.

In Preventive dentistry, regular scale and clean can help intercept dental issues when they first start to develop. When decay and gum disease are treated early, you’ll enjoy healthier teeth and require less dental work in the long run.

What to Expect During Your Checkup

A six-monthly dental checkup or exam includes the following:

  • A thorough examination of every tooth in the mouth
  • Evaluating existing dental work
  • Gum disease (periodontal) screening
  • Diagnostic x-rays, as needed
  • Scale and polish
  • Fluoride application
  • Oral hygiene instructions

Six monthly scales & polish helps prevent gum disease from progressing. Less frequent visits allow tartar to build up more inside the gums, causing gum bleeding, gum infections and bone loss.

Do You Have Gum Disease?

In a healthy mouth, the gums do not bleed when you floss and brush. Gums that appear swollen and red are signs that the body is trying to overcome an infection inside your mouth. Bacterial plaque triggers an immune response around the gingiva (the gum part that attaches to your teeth).

Advanced gum disease causes gums to recede and bone loss. Teeth will start to loosen, become sensitive and bad breath becomes apparent. Teeth may also appear longer than usual.

Did you know that gum disease can increase your risk of health issues like heart problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, pneumonia and stroke. If you are concern about having active gum disease, do ask our dentists about non-surgical periodontal therapy (gum treatment).

Why Do I Need X-rays?

Digital x-rays are like a second pair of eyes for the dentist to see areas in the mouth that are not visible during a regular exam. For instance, cysts, bone lesions, small cavities, bone loss and abscess can be detected with x-rays.

Because of advances in digital radiography, we use as much as 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays, making them safer than ever.

Digital imaging takes seconds to do and you can view the images almost instantly therefore your dentist can deliver efficient diagnosis of your dental condition.

FAQs

No. Teeth cleaning is a broader term. Dental scaling and polishing are a part of the entire cleaning process. Scaling refers to scraping off the plaque buildup from the tooth surface. It involves a bit of rigorous cleaning. 

On the other hand, dental polishing involves applying a gritty toothpaste-like polishing compound to get back the shining teeth. 

Our dental scaling and polishing in Singapore fee is from $105.5. This includes fluoride gel treatment, digital X-ray, and antiseptic mouthwash. The price may vary depending on the condition of your teeth and gums, and whether you have any additional treatments or services.

To uphold your oral health and hygiene, it is imperative to adopt these practices:

  • Brush your teeth thoroughly three times a day for two minutes each time.
  • Floss at least once daily.
  • Schedule an appointment with your dentist for scaling and polishing every 6 to 12 months.

After teeth scaling, it’s common to experience minor bleeding, soreness, or tooth and gum sensitivity for a few days, but this is temporary. To ease discomfort and prevent infection follow these tips:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm salt water or use an antiseptic mouthwash
  • Gently brush and floss your teeth regularly to maintain oral hygiene
  • Avoid hard or sticky foods that could irritate your gums or harm your teeth
  • Steer clear of smoking and alcohol, as they can impede healing and raise the risk of complications
