Scale and Clean at Bentley

In the realm of dental care, maintaining the health of your natural teeth is paramount. Yet, even with the best efforts, challenges may arise. At Bentley Plaza Dental Clinic, we recognise the importance of preserving your smile's integrity and the confidence it embodies. On our scale and clean page, we highlight the preventive measures and treatments designed to protect your teeth from the everyday wear and tear they face. With our comprehensive scale and clean services, we're committed to helping you maintain a healthy, vibrant smile that lasts.

A professional scale and clean at Bentley Plaza Dental in Perth, WA, goes beyond the capabilities of your daily home oral care routine. It's an indispensable procedure aimed at removing plaque and tartar build-up, substances that are notoriously difficult to eliminate with regular brushing and flossing alone.

Why is this so critical?

Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, can harden into tartar if not properly removed, leading to a host of oral health issues.The consequences of allowing plaque and tartar to persist can be severe, including tooth decay, gum disease (gingivitis), and even more advanced conditions like periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss. These conditions are not only harmful to your oral health but can also affect your overall well-being, as studies have shown links between gum disease and other health issues like heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Moreover, a professional clean is not just about preventing disease; it also plays a vital role in maintaining the aesthetics of your smile and can significantly contribute to fresher breath, ensuring you feel confident in your oral health.

Recognising the importance of these treatments, many private health insurance plans include dental cleanings as part of their preventive dental benefits. This is a testament to the recognised value of regular professional cleanings in maintaining oral health and preventing more serious conditions. At Bentley Plaza Dental Clinic, we support a wide range of health funds, making it easier for our patients to access these necessary services with minimal to no out-of-pocket costs.
