Enjoy a Whiter Smile with a Scale and Clean

Tartar cannot go away with normal brushing. But you no longer have to put up with grime, tartar, or yellow teeth. Mary River Dental offers scale and clean in Maryborough to address any built-up plaque or tartar.

Remove plaque and tartar.

Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth, and tartar is hardened plaque. Removing them can help improve your teeth's appearance and make them look brighter and whiter.

Prevent tooth decay.

If plaque and tartar are not removed, they can damage the tooth enamel and lead to cavities. A scale and clean is an important step in preventing tooth decay and maintaining oral health.

Prevent gum disease.

Gum disease is caused by the build-up of plaque on teeth, which leads to inflammation and irritation of the gums. Scale and clean helps to remove plaque from teeth, preventing it from causing damage to the gums.

Get fresher breath.

Bacteria colonies grow in our mouths whenever we eat or drink. A scale and clean can help to remove any odour-producing bacteria from your mouth, helping you address chronic bad breath.

Depending on your risk factors, your dentist will recommend how often you should come for these appointments. For most adults, it is recommended to have a scale and clean every 6-12 months. However, you may need to come in more frequently if you have gum disease or if you had gum disease in the past.

The average dental scaling and cleaning procedure takes about 20-30 minutes. However, the length of time may vary depending on your unique situation. For example, the procedure may take longer if you have extensive tartar build-up. Additionally, if an individual has any gum disease present, the procedure may also take longer.

Here are the dos and don’ts after your scaling of teeth in Maryborough:


  • Wait at least 30 minutes before eating and drinking.
    During this waiting period, the fluoride treatment binds with the tooth enamel. Eating and drinking acidic or carbonated beverages might flush away the fluoride before it can bond with the minerals on the teeth’s surfaces.
  • Be on the lookout.
    Following a scale and clean, some may experience teeth sensitivity and tender gums. However, all of these ought to disappear after a day or two. Any longer, you should see your dentist to see if there is a problem that requires attention.
  • Brush your teeth before bedtime.
    Be gentle with your teeth and gums, and brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush.


  • Smoke or drink alcohol in the days following your scale and clean
    The chemicals in tobacco can irritate the gums and lead to infection.
  • Eat anything tough, chewy, and crunchy for a few days.
    Your gums might feel tender for a few days after the procedure, so it won’t feel good when crunchy food grinds into them. During those days, stick to softer meals.
  • How much does a scale and clean cost?
    The cost may vary depending on the amount of plaque buildup. On average, teeth scaling in Maryborough usually costs around $150 to $350. Contact the friendly team at Mary River Dental to get an accurate quote.
