What is Teeth Cleaning?
At Identity Dentistry, we punctuate the importance of taking preventive measures to ensure that your mouth is kept healthy.
The most common cause for dental treatment is tooth decay and this is a highly preventable disease if patients are well-informed on proper oral hygiene practices.
Teeth Cleaning is a relatively inexpensive way to keep your oral health in its optimum state. This is recommended twice a year, every 6 months.
It involves a series of processes from your dental examination, teeth wash, scaling of plaque, removal of calculus, polishing, and fluoride treatment.
Dental examination is an integral step for an appointment for dental cleaning. It checks for dental concerns so management and treatment can be established before the situation gets worse.
Other areas in the mouth are also inspected such as the gums for gingivitis.
Then, plaques and tartar on the surface of your teeth are removed using a scaler. These are where bacteria thrives that contributes to tooth decay and bad breath.
Remember that removal of these dirt can only be done by Professional Teeth Cleaning Canberra.
If there is accumulated plaque, over time these will result in formation of hard calculus that may be difficult to remove through. Deep scaling may be necessary if advised by your dentist Canberra.
When the teeth are cleaned and spotless, polishing is necessary to brighten and whiten the teeth. This is done using a powerful electric brush and a gritty toothpaste.
This is followed by expert flossing for whole mouth cleaning.
The last step is fluoride treatment. Fluoride helps strengthen the teeth and prevents further worsening of early signs of tooth decay such as the white spots on the tooth surface.
Through regular fluoride treatment, you can expect a cavity-free mouth.
