Cleaning, Scale & Polish at Antalya Dental Hospital, Turkey

Cleaning, Scale & Polish: What Are They, Benefits and Cost

A scale and polish can be done by your dentist or hygienist. The first ‘scrape’ stage removes the deposits of plaque and tartar. Often an ultrasound scraper is used first to get rid of the bulk of the tartar, followed by specialised hand held instruments to scrape away any stubborn remains.

Reinforce good oral hygiene habits.

Visiting your hygienist regularly for cleaning is very important in keeping your mouth healthy. Even if you clean your teeth every day, plaque can still build up in areas that are difficult to reach with your toothbrush alone.

Your hygienist is the expert in teeth cleaning, often called a ‘scale and polish’. They are especially trained to carry out preventative oral care and they have all the tools to remove the buildup of plaque and calculus.

Improve your personal oral hygiene with scale and polish.

During your scale and polish appointment, our hygienist will look for early signs of gum disease and will discuss ways to improve your personal oral hygiene and oral habits.

At the Dental Clinic Antalya, we recommend visiting our hygienist every 6 months for teeth cleaning, scale and polish to remove plaque buildup and reinforce good oral hygiene habits. For patients wearing braces, we advise them to schedule their hygiene appointments more frequently to keep their teeth in great health during their treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Health


Our FAQs are the most commonly-asked questions put to our Dental Helpline over the last year. If you have a question for us, you can ask our Dental Helpline by telephone or email. Alternatively, please take a look at our library of oral health information, which contains a wide range of oral health advice in an easy-to-understand Q&A format.

Does root canal treatment hurt?2022-02-06T19:46:27+03:00

No. Usually, a local anaesthetic is used and it should feel no different to having an ordinary filling done. There may be some tenderness afterwards but this should gradually get less over time.

How do I go about getting orthodontic treatment?2022-02-06T20:43:29+03:00

The first thing to do is to visit your own dental team and get their advice. Your dental team will know whether you need treatment and will make the necessary arrangements.

Can my crooked or twisted teeth be straightened?2022-02-06T22:32:27+03:00

Teeth can be straightened with orthodontics (braces). This is usually done during the teenage years, when the jaws are going through a period of growth. However, many adults also have treatment to straighten their crooked teeth or to improve their appearance. The treatment can take much longer in adults and is therefore more expensive.

Some people have clear or plastic braces, which are hardly noticeable. If you are considering orthodontic treatment, first see your dental team and get their advice. Your dental team can talk to you about your treatment options and if necessary refer you to an orthodontist, a dentist who specialises in straightening teeth.

There are also now ‘invisible’ braces. Your dentist will make you a series of clear plastic shields (like a mouthguard) which need to be worn all day and gradually move your teeth into a new position.

What else causes bad breath?2022-02-06T22:09:29+03:00

Bad breath can also be caused by some medical problems. ‘Dry mouth’ (xerostomia) is a condition that means your mouth produces less saliva. This causes bacteria to build up in your mouth and this leads to bad breath. Dry mouth may be caused by some medicines, by salivary gland problems or by continually breathing through your mouth instead of your nose. Older people may produce less saliva, causing further problems.

If you suffer from dry mouth, your dental team may be able to recommend or prescribe an artificial saliva product. Or they may be able to suggest other ways of dealing with the problem.
