Teeth cleaning plays a very important role in keeping our teeth and gums healthy to complement the effort people in caring for their teeth through brushing and flossing on a day to day basis. That said, brushing and flossing alone will typically not be enough with plaque and tartar building up.
Plaque has bacteria that can damage the tooth enamel surface which then typically results in cavities (holes). This is where the services of our professional Dentists, Oral Health Therapists and Hygienists come in.
Teeth Cleaning is a procedure that helps remove the plaque and tartar buildup from the mouth. This in turn reduces the likelihood of cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease from developing.
People are generally advised to get dental cleaning every 6 months to help improve and maintain the overall quality of the smile and teeth.
However, before patients get teeth cleaning, a dental check up of their entire mouth will be done before the actual cleaning process starts.
This in turn helps detect any complications or major problems that can make the cleaning process difficult to accomplish.
Teeth Cleaning is a simple and generally painless procedure. There are no injections or any anaesthesia involved and the procedure itself can be completed in a short amount of time in as quick as 10-15 minutes sometimes.
As a result, setting up a check-up and teeth cleaning appointment is easily booked. There are a number of steps involved which include tooth scaling and tooth polishing if too much tartar buildup has already developed.
Tooth scaling works from the surface of the teeth as well as from the pocket area between the teeth and gums helping remove plaque and tartar around them. On the other hand, tooth polishing includes the application of fluoride treatment to help protect against cavities for several months.
