This is a fundamental and very important procedure for oral and dental care. It is typically performed in a single session lasting one hour with the specialized dentist at the clinic. Teeth cleaning contributes to maintaining the health of teeth and gums, helping to prevent cavities, gum inflammation, and other issues. Regular teeth cleaning is recommended as part of the overall oral and dental health routine, and its frequency may vary based on individual recommendations and personal needs. It is essential to consult a dentist for specific guidance on teeth cleaning and to schedule appropriate appointments based on the dental health condition.
How are teeth cleaned?
1. Special tools such as dental mirrors, dental scalers, and high-pressure water are used to remove surface deposits, dental plaque, tartar, harmful bacteria, and plaque from the teeth. Focus is placed on hard-to-reach areas like the gaps between teeth and the gumline.
2. If there are black accumulations and deposits beneath the gumline, our dentist might perform an additional step called gum cleaning. Using special tools, the dentist removes plaque and deposits from the gum pockets formed between the teeth and the gums.
3. After the deposits are removed, the surface of the teeth is polished using special tools or polishing paste. This helps in eliminating surface stains and achieving a brighter and shinier appearance for the teeth.
4. During the dental cleaning session, our dentist may provide you with advice on proper oral care. This may include guidance on appropriate cleaning techniques, the use of toothbrushes, dental floss, and mouthwash, as well as instructions on a healthy diet.
