Full mouth disinfection

Receive our highest level of hygiene services to fully clean and disinfect your mouth.

All you need to know about full mouth disinfection

  • Enjoy fresh breath
  • Less visits needed to the dentist
  • Prevent reinfection and disease

Full mouth disinfection or full mouth scaling is a treatment for advanced or aggressive gum (periodontal) disease.

We use 90 minutes appointment rather than usual 45 minutes to attempt to remove and disrupt the bacteria allowing your mouth and gums to return to health. This can be used along with antimicrobials, antibiotics or antiseptics to help your system cleanse.

Conventional treatment can allow time for bacteria to regrow from the tonsils, tongue or other gum pockets. Full mouth disinfection doesn’t allow this to happen.

Treatment is usually done under local anaesthetic, making it much more comfortable for you.

Once your mouth is disinfected it is up to you to maintain it at home. We would see you again a couple of months later to reassess and reclean any areas that did not respond to the treatment.

Please note that this treatment needs to be prescribed by the dentist or periodontist.

Went to see the lovely Christine for my regular hygienist check and polish - she did the usual great job, combining thoroughness with gentleness and leaving my smile squeaky clean and sparkling.
