Check-Up, Scaling and Polishing

It is usually a good idea for most patients to have a regular dental health check examination with scaling and polishing.  How often will be determined at your examination; we have patients on three-monthly, six-monthly and annual recalls.  Regular dental examinations alongside scaling and polishing are necessary to ensure that no new lesions or unexpected deterioration occur without early diagnosis. Regular scaling is essential to maintain satisfactory health of the gums and supporting bone and is often the most important part of regular monitoring.
