Regular dental cleaning is an essential aspect of preventive dental care. It involves the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth, which cannot be effectively eliminated through regular brushing and flossing alone. Our skilled dental hygienists use advanced tools and techniques to perform a thorough cleaning, ensuring that your teeth and gums are free from harmful bacteria and debris.
Here are some key reasons why dental cleaning is vital for your oral health:
Preventing Gum Disease: Plaque buildup can lead to gum inflammation and infection, resulting in gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis). Professional dental cleaning removes plaque and tartar, reducing the risk of gum disease and its associated complications.
Cavities Prevention: Plaque contains harmful bacteria that produce acids, leading to tooth decay and cavities. Regular cleaning removes plaque, minimizing the chances of cavities and the need for more extensive dental treatments in the future.
Fresher Breath: Persistent bad breath can be a sign of underlying dental issues. Dental cleaning helps eliminate bacteria and plaque that contribute to bad breath, leaving you with a fresher and more pleasant breath.
Brighter Smile: Over time, certain food, drinks, and habits like smoking can stain your teeth, resulting in a dull and discolored smile. Dental cleaning removes surface stains, helping to restore the natural brightness of your teeth and giving you a radiant smile.

Removal of calculus (tartar):

Calculus is plaque that gets hardened overtime and harbors bacteria. It is caused by the continual accumulation of minerals from saliva and becomes firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can be threatening to the health of gums. Calculus can only be removed with special dental instruments.

Elimination of plaque:

Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!

Teeth Polishing:

Teeth Polishing is removing stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
