Natural teeth are precious and worth an ounce of care. Infection in the mouth can spread the toxins inside the mouth as well to other parts of the body. So oral health should be taken care of and should be your priority. You can get the below-mentioned benefits from professional teeth cleaning.

1. Prevent cavity formation:

Teeth cleaning helps to prevent cavities. As the cavity is not formed overnight, it takes time to grow. Once it starts increasing, it penetrates to the inner layer of the tooth. Before spreading to the next level our dentist can save your tooth with the teeth cleaning process.

2. Prevent bad breath:

Have you wondered why you have bad breath even after brushing daily? this is because of plaque that is formed. Plaque cannot be removed by any home remedies. Once it formed in the tooth, it can only be removed by clinical devices (Ultrasonic scaling device).

3. Stop the active bacterias:

The existing plaque and tartar are the shelter for bacteria. Through this, it will start spreading to the surrounding. To prevent these risks, teeth cleaning treatment becomes important.

What is the procedure of teeth cleaning?

At Sabka dentist clinics our dentists will perform the cleaning process in a very efficient manner. The process is as follows:

  1. A physical examination:

    When you visit our clinic the dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth. They will check for the signs of cavity, tartar, and plaque. They check the health of your gum line or any appearing signs.

  2. Removing the plaque and gum line:

    Once the oral examination will be done, the dentist will start the teeth cleaning treatment. They will make use of an ultrasonic scaling device with ultrasonic vibration to remove the plaque from the tooth surface. Then the gum-line will be targeted, they will remove all the accumulated tartar from the gum line. You will be able to hear a scraping noise during this process. But it is normal and it will not harm your tooth. The more tartar you have the more time it will take to clean your teeth.

  3. Polishing:

    Once the tartar is removed completely, the dentist will brush the teeth gently with a high powered electric brush. You may hear a grinding noise in this process. But it is only helping to achieve a smooth surface. Then the dentist will apply the fluoride gel. The crumbly consistency of the toothpaste scrubs the teeth gently. It gives good polish to the teeth.

  4. Re-examine:

    Once all the process is done, the dentist will ask you to rinse. At this stage, your mouth will be completely cleaned. The dentist will reexamine your teeth and discusses any discomfort you have. They will also check the face, neck, and ears for any other oral issues.

How many visits are required?

Usually, teeth cleaning is done in one visit. But depending upon the problems you may have. Our dentist will suggest 2-4 visits if you have a deeper level of plaque.

What is oral care after the treatment?

No special care will be advised. You can do your regular activities. But the dentist will advise you to maintain oral hygiene. This will help you to prevent further forming of plaque.

Can I do teeth cleaning at home?

There are some toothpaste available in the market which claims that they can clean the teeth. They will help remove the stains. Once the plaque is formed it will be removed only by the dentist. Hence toothpaste in itself is not sufficient.
