Tag Dental Clinic: Dental Scaling and Polishing in Johor Bahru

Since many of you seemed to love my dental and Invisalign series, I thought I'd share my experience last month at TAG Dental Clinic, Johor Bahru! I posted on Facebook that I wanted to look for teeth whitening services in JB and someone suggested a nearby dental clinic at Taman Austin Perdana. After doing some research, I found that it is one of the best dental clinics in Johor Bahru so I decided to go for it!

TAG Dental Clinic is located on the 20th floor at Austin18 Versatile Business Suites. At first I was skeptical if I was at the right place, until I saw the neon lights at the end of the corridor. 😂 TAG Dental serves patients from Malaysia and Singapore, and I heard that they are will update their operating hours till 10pm so that they can better serve patients who work during the day (like me). It's great news cos if I ever need an emergency dental clinic near me, so if you ever have a dental emergency such as root canal treatment or dental pain treatment, TAG Dental is the oral surgeon to visit in Johor Bahru.

The clinic looks quite small, but cosy. Don't be fooled, they are well-equipped with the best and most advanced equipments (you can see more on how the clinic looks like here). As you can see, TAG Dental Clinic also provides Invisalign, Damon braces and dental braces in Johor Bahru. They also provide dental implants in Malaysia.

While I was waiting for my turn, I was busy taking pics and admiring the view from the 20th floor. I mean, which other dental clinic in Johor Bahru would have such a great panoramic scenery? 😍 #soinstagrammable

At TAG Dental Clinic, the dentist checked my teeth and suggested that I do some dental scaling and polishing first before I do the laser whitening treatment. This is because I still have my attachments for the Invisalign aligners on my teeth and it'd be better if I do the teeth whitening after I remove them. Not sure what the teeth whitening cost is, but I'll check if out the next time I go if you guys are interested. The treatment rooms are well-equipped and the nurses were really friendly and helpful, I felt right at home 😀 

The Dental Scaling and Polishing service includes removal of calculus and tartar from the teeth surface. By polishing the teeth, food residue, coffee and smoking stains are removed. This will ensure you have healthy, non-bleeding gums. If not removed, more plaque can build up around the teeth and potentially lead to the swelling of the gum line or even gum disease. The dentist was really skillful and completed my teeth scaling and polishing in less than an hour. Thank goodness my gum doesn't bleed when I do scaling - but if you do, you know who to look for for gum bleeding treatment 😉 You can find out more about teeth cleaning info on the website here

Next, we did an X-ray cos I feel that my wisdom tooth is growing and I might need wisdom tooth extraction after that 😨 According to the dentist and their site, there are 2 types of X-ray which are IOPA and OPG or Cephalogram. I did the panoramic X-ray, which is the OPG. The panoramic X-ray is commonly done for braces and I've actually done this twice before getting my Invisalign done. This Planmeca ProMax® 3D Ultra-Low Dose™ X-ray is worth every penny cos studies have shown that the radiation dose is 77% lower than other X-ray machines, making it safer for patients, especially kids as there is less radiation exposure, whilst still producing high image quality. 

As you can see, I definitely need to get a wisdom tooth surgery done as my bottom wisdom teeth are both starting to move my teeth and in the long run might result in tooth decay. I'm so scared to do the surgery but the dentist has assured me that it will be okay.. We shall see the next time as I have not scheduled it 🙊

This is the results of the dental scaling and polishing at TAG Dental Clinic! My teeth were so much whiter and smoother even before doing the teeth whitening. 😄 The next round, I will be back to do some tooth filling as the dentist mentioned that I have a curious molar that requires dental filling. Their rates are affordable, what with all the promo going on now (you guys can PM me to ask about the teeth cleaning cost if you want).

Oh yes before I forget, TAG Dental Clinic is expanding to Kuala Lumpur soon! So KL friends, stay tuned for it and will update you guys next time!
