      Teeth Cleaning in Dubai

      Teeth Cleaning

      A great smile starts with great oral hygiene.

      Most people think that following a good home care routine alone is key to maintaining good dental hygiene. However, brushing and flossing alone are not enough to remove the plaque and calculus that build up on your teeth over time.

      It is recommended to go for a regular professional clean (also called a scale and polish) with your dental hygienist every 6 months. They are the experts in oral hygiene equipped with right tools and technology that will make your hygiene appointment comfortable all throughout.

      Visit your dental hygienist regularly.

      During the appointment, your dental hygienist will discuss with you the condition of your teeth and gums, as well as ways to improve your home care routine. More specific hygiene tips are given to patients who are wearing braces and may be advised to visit more often than usual.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      It is generally recommended to visit a dental hygienist for a scale and polish appointment every six months as part of your regular dental check-up routine. However, the frequency may vary depending on your individual oral health needs and the recommendation of your dentist.

      For example, individuals at a higher risk of gum disease—such as those with diabetes, heavy smokers, and patients wearing braces—may be recommended to see their hygienists more frequently.

      During a scale and polish appointment, the dental hygienist will first perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to assess your oral health. They will then use specialized tools to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from the surfaces of your teeth, followed by polishing to leave your teeth feeling smooth and looking shiny.

      A scale and polish appointment is typically not painful, although some people with sensitive gums and teeth may experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity during the cleaning process. Your hygienist will ensure your comfort throughout the appointment, and any discomfort can usually be managed with gentle techniques.

      The duration of a scale and polish appointment can vary depending on the amount of buildup on your teeth and the specific treatment needed. On average, a routine scale and polish appointment may take between 45 to 60 minutes to complete.

      Many dental insurance plans cover preventive services such as scale and polish appointments as part of their coverage. However, coverage may vary depending on your specific insurance plan.
