Leslie North Dental
Scaling, Polishing and Fluoride Therapy
Your dental hygienist will tell you that the key to a lifetime of clean and healthy beautiful smiles is to combine good hygiene habits with the occasional scaling, polishing & fluoride therapy. But what is scaling, polishing, and fluoride therapy?
Scaling is a standard procedure where a dentist scrapes off the plaque and tartar from the teeth’ surface and underneath the gum line.
Subsequently, the teeth are polished to leave a smooth glossy finish, making it difficult for plaque to form in the future.
Finally, the teeth are topped with a protective layer of fluoride, which fortifies the tooth’s outer protective layer (enamel) against bacteria penetrating the tooth and causing damage to the core tissue where delicate nerves and blood are.

So I was back at the dentist again today! It met every expectation. I was nervous, once again all the staff made me feel at ease. They make sure when your appointment is at 2pm it’s at 2pm.. unlike most make you wait an hour or more!! I could just go on and on about this pace.. just simply amazing
Best one around. Always pleased after I visit. Staff is incredibly professional and helpful. I’ve never had a bad experience and neither has the rest of my family, needless to say, these dentists really know what they are doing.
This place is wonderful!! The entire staff is friendly and makes you feel welcome. They really care for their patients comfort. Dr. Shokati did a fantastic job on a crown for me and fillings. He took great care and made sure I was comfortable the entire time
