Scaling & Polishing
The purpose of scale and polish is to remove any tartar and plaque deposits that build up on your teeth over time.
Scaling refers to the first stage of removing the deposits of plaque and tartar, using ultrasound scraper and specialised handheld instruments.
The next stage is to polish the teeth to smoothes away minor imperfections and patches of rough texture on the teeth to protect against further plaque build-up.
A dental filling is used to fill a cavity (a hole that has formed in your teeth) or other damage such as a chipped tooth. Cavities get bigger over time, so the sooner they’re spotted and filled, the less likely you are to have problems later.
Without treatment, a cavity or chipped tooth can lead to toothache, bad breath, infection, and even the fracturing or loss of your tooth.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth removal means having one or more of the third molars (your wisdom teeth) at the back of your mouth taken out. This can sometimes involve a surgical procedure.
Your wisdom teeth are the last four of the large grinding teeth (molars) at the back of your mouth to come through.
Sometimes, your wisdom teeth don’t come through properly, meaning they’re impacted. This can cause problems such as pain, swelling and infection. Having your wisdom teeth taken out can ease these symptoms.
