Scale & Clean

Do your teeth need a professional clean?

Preferred Providers

Health Funds
To ensure a youthful healthy smile for life, it’s important for both adults and children to clean their teeth at least twice a day. Sadly this kind of routine is often missed leaving teeth in need of more serious cleaning.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
A professional clean, also known as a scale and clean, is designed to remove plaque and tartar that is unable to be removed with normal everyday brushing at home. Such regimes will help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

For patients with private health insurance including dental cover, the cost of teeth cleaning is often covered by the health fund’s preventive dental benefits. This often means patients will have no or very limited out of pocket costs associated with a professional scale and clean. See out list of supported health funds to see if your’s is supported.

You might need a Scale and Clean if you…
  • Have plaque or calculus/tartar on your teeth that can’t be removed by brushing and flossing
  • Want to take preventative measures to care for your teeth
  • Your teeth are stained from cigarette smoke
  • Jaw joint (temporomandibular joint) pain
  • Your teeth are stained from drinks such as coffee, tea or red wine
