Professional Clean


What is a professional clean?

A professional clean is a secondary hygiene package that can be offered by your dentist or dental hygienist. It is offered as a treatment for patients showing signs of poor oral hygiene, mild gingivitis, or more serious gum disease problems. The package will offer more than our SynClean package and will focus more on eliminating stains while eliminating the necessary areas of plaque and hard calculus.

Your dentist may recommend you for a professional clean if you are showing signs of poor oral health or gum disease. Gum disease – also referred to as gingivitis or periodontitis– is caused by excessive build-up of plaque in and around the teeth and gum pocket. This hard build-up of plaque cannot be cleaned away at home, and will need specialist cleaning. Although a twice-daily brush is a necessary part of correct teeth maintenance, your dentist might recommend a professional clean if the plaque around your mouth has reached difficult areas and has begun to mineralise into tartar.

How is it done?

The package includes a scale and polish to eliminate plaque build-up in trickier places of the mouth that are near impossible to reach using a standard toothbrush at home.

During the initial scaling stage, specialist instruments, such as an ultrasound scrapper, will be used to eliminate tartar build-up in those tough to reach spots. This will remove the bulk of the tartar, while a second scrape will eliminate any additional stubborn remains. 

The second polishing stage is not a cosmetic procedure, and it is an important part of the scale and polish process as a whole, as the polish will smooth away any minor imperfections on the teeth where plaque may build up over time. 

Although a scale and a polish session will remove light stains, stubborn stains like wine or tobacco will need an additional stain removal treatment. The additional treatment of stain removal will provide further depth to the standard scale and polish, leaving your teeth free from excess plaque and prevent the risk of developing gum disease. To finish your treatment, your dentist will ask you to use an antiseptic mouth rinse.

Dental Hygiene

Teeth scaling and root planning is a deep, rigorous clean which reaches underneath the gum line. Cleaning in and around the gum pockets is necessary but can be slightly invasive. Local anesthetic could be required if your dentist believes it to be necessary or if your case requires it.
