Cleaning and polishing of the teeth is one of the quickest and safest ways to improve the radiance of your smile and oral health.
Removes Stains from teeth:
Teeth can be superficially stained by many things like tea, coffee, red wine, berries, and tobacco. Cleaning and polishing will help to remove these superficial stains that are build up over time and return your teeth closer to their natural color.
But did you know that there are other reasons why your teeth should get cleaning and polishing every 6 months?
Removes harmful plaque and tartar:
Even when you have just finished brushing your teeth, they immediately get coated by proteins that are normally found in saliva. These proteins allow bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease to stick to your teeth.
Over a time, if not cleaned regularly, these bacteria continue to grow and form soft yellow plaque. This can be easily cleaned off at first, but if left for a long duration it can harden into tartar or ‘calculus’ as your dentist might call it.
This is very difficult to remove by brushing alone. Plaque and tartar is formed most commonly in places that are difficult to reach, but it can also form almost anywhere on teeth that have not been cleaned thoroughly on a regular basis.
Cleaning and polishing will help to remove tartar that is build-up. This means a lesser risk of tooth decay, a lower chance of bleeding gums and gum recession and a lower chance of your teeth gradually become loose due to bone loss.
