What is Teeth Cleaning?

Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that are built upon the teeth over time due to remaining particles of leftover food that is stuck in between the teeth. These include stains on the enamel. They can range from white streaks to yellow tints or brown spots and pits. If the enamel is worn away, and dentin is showing through, you may notice a yellow tint in the dentin.

Why do you need Teeth Cleaning?

Our teeth are continually covered in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth. While this is a good thing, it also means that we are prone to a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth. This pale substance will eventually settle over time, like limescale in a pipe or kettle. Typically, tooth-colored tartar can easily be mistaken as part of the teeth, but it also can vary from brown to black.

If the scale or tartar can accumulate on the teeth it will, unfortunately, create conditions for bacteria to thrive next to the gums. The purpose of the cleaning and polishing treatment is basically to leave the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick them and you can have a better way of keeping the teeth clean during your regular home care.
