Dental clean and polish in Burnham

Visiting your dentist at least twice a year can do more than just keep your smile attractive. Regular dental visits can also help improve and safeguard your overall health. The condition of your mouth reflects the health of your body as a whole. A healthy mouth is linked with good health, whereas poor oral hygiene may lead to all sorts of problems.

At The Dental Surgery Burnham in Burnham, we believe that prevention is better than cure. Practicing good oral hygiene habits helps maintain the health and function of your teeth, but it’s not sufficient on its own. Our experienced dentists and hygienists will examine your teeth thoroughly, clean and polish your teeth and offer valuable advice on keeping your mouth, teeth and especially your gums healthy and plaque-free. More importantly, we will examine your teeth for symptoms that may point to other health issues.

Our services

We offer thorough teeth cleaning consisting of a scale and polish, which is a very common preventive treatment. Teeth cleaning is designed to form part of a dental hygiene plan with the aim of keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy.

Even if you brush and floss your teeth regularly after meals, bacteria and plaque stick on your enamel throughout the day. Some of them tend to concentrate in hard-to-reach places, therefore being impossible to remove without the help of your dentist. Over time, the sticky bacterial film that forms on the teeth, also known as plaque, becomes harmful.

Plaque does not only affect tooth enamel but also the gum line. If is not removed, it will eventually harden and turn into tartar, a yellow or brown mineral deposit, that creates a film over your teeth. This makes them more vulnerable to future plaque deposits and can cause gum disease. Plaque can also corrode the teeth over time causing cavities and tooth decay as well as bad breath.

A thorough dental clean and polish will not only remove plaque and hardened tartar, but will also leave your teeth nice and smooth. Polishing prevents bacteria from sticking to the tooth enamel and eventually helps prevent gum disease.

Generally, a scale and polish treatment is painless, yet people with sore gums or badly worn teeth may experience some discomfort. Our gentle and experienced dentists will minimise the risk of pain.
