Professional Teeth Cleaning
Regular Cleaning versus Dental Cleaning
Traditional methods of brushing, flossing and scrubbing cannot fight all the the germs and bacteria in your mouth. It is highly important that you go to a dental office to get your teeth cleaned of all the bacteria that might cause problems later on.
Professional Teeth Cleaning:
Professional teeth-cleaning is easy, fast and highly effective. The most common practices involved in teeth-cleaning are listed below:
- Consultation with our dentist
The first step is for our dentist to review your records to see whether you had any dental x-rays recently. Dental x-rays are important to get a clear picture of what is happening below the gum line, as well as detecting cavities and infections.
- Gentle Cleansing of Teeth
This is the most basic step of the whole process. Our dentist will gently clean and remove all the plaque and tartar off your teeth. Furthermore, our dentist will also examine your teeth carefully for cavities, inflammation or decay.
- Ultra Sonic Brushing and Flossing
Once your teeth have been cleaned gently, our dentist will use ultra-sonic brushing tools to polish your teeth. This is when a grainy toothpaste is used to scrub your teeth for that flawless finish. After all the plaque and tartar is removed and the teeth are polished, our dentist will begin to floss. This is done before your teeth are rinsed.
- Dental Examination
Our dentist will inspect your dental health in detail. He will look at your teeth for even the slightest chance of dental decay in order to eliminate any such triggers before they become a problem. Don’t forget, his objective is to make sure that he has catered to every single dental issue that you may have, before you leave our dental office.
Our dentist will request you to rinse your mouth with a strong fluoride mouthwash for approximately two minutes. This fluoride treatment will also help you get rid of bad breath problems. You can also ask our dentist to recommend a good mouthwash for you to use at your own convenience.
Our dentist will probably ask you to book a follow-up appointment to continue treating any problems that still need to be resolved for instance tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Teeth-cleaning is a significant element of your dental health because it holds the potential to prevent serious health risks and diseases.
