Teeth cleaning is an essential part of keeping your oral health in check. Professional dental cleaning will remove the build-up of plaque that normal brushing cannot reach and ensures no further complications from plaque develop. This is why it is essential to have your teeth cleaned once every 6 months and to maintain good preventative dental measures at home in between visits. This is a treatment that is performed during a normal dental check up so it shouldn’t take any extra time or multiple appointments. Teeth cleaning can be used on its own or as the first step to many dental treatments including cosmetic dentistry. Clean teeth ensure that you are ready to receive any further treatment and are the first step towards a bright and beautiful smile.
During the appointment your dentist will remove excess plaque and give your teeth a thorough clean. Multiple tools will be used during this process however none harm the teeth. The clean will often finish with fluoride, which comes in a variety of fun flavors and strengthens the teeth.
Dental cleaning shouldn’t be painful and if they are it could be indicative of further dental issues. These will need to be examined and further treatment taken.
