What is Teeth Cleaning?
Teeth Cleaning is a routine dental procedure, it is nothing but a deep cleaning of teeth. In this procedure, Dentist removes any accumulation of debris, plaque on the tooth surface. At Peach Dental we make sure the patient is absolutely comfortable and is aware of the procedure before we start.
While our everyday brushing removes only the superficial debris, Teeth Cleaning provides much deeper cleaning which helps in preventing gum disease and removes excessive plaque.
Why is Teeth Cleaning necessary?
Everyone experiences some plaque build-up on the tooth surface. The saliva, bacteria, and proteins in your mouth form a thin layer that covers your teeth at almost all times. When you eat, tiny particles and sugars from the food stick to this film, creating a build-up on the teeth known as plaque. The bacteria that lives in this plaque can cause gum disease.
Brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings will help remove the plaque and prevent more serious problems. Excessive build-up of plaque will lead to bad breath and loosening of gums. If you have healthy gums, the tissue will fit tightly around the tooth and keep plaque out. However, if gum disease begins to form, this tissue around your teeth will get inflamed and will loosen.
How often do we need Teeth cleaning?
It is necessary to do teeth cleaning/ scaling ever six months.
Gum disease is the main cause for tooth loss. Having your gums and teeth assessed every six months can help you maintain healthy gums and teeth. At Peach Dental we make sure the review appointments happens at a regular basis and gives reminder to all our patients.
After Teeth Cleaning, the next step is to ‘polish’ the teeth to make the surface really smooth. While polishing removes stains leaving teeth bright and shiny, it is not just a cosmetic procedure. It also smoothens away minor imperfections and patches of rough texture on the teeth to protect against further plaque build-up. We prioritise patient’s comfort, and address all our patient’s concerns and explain about dental procedures in depth.
We care about your teeth, here in Peach Dental Clinic we do polishing of teeth post scaling without any extra charges.
Myth about Teeth Cleaning.
Common myth about teeth cleaning is that teeth cleaning leads to removal of enamel. Teeth cleaning is a non-invasive procedure where we use Ultrasonic cleaning tips along with the irrigation of water, it helps to remove plaque and hard tooth deposits. The fact is Enamel is the hardest substance in our body., teeth cleaning does not affect the enamel or weaken your teeth.
