Teeth cleaning can be done at home. Regular brushing, flossing and mouth rinsing can be considered as a healthy oral practice. But do these activities ensure the entire cleanliness of the mouth? No. There are areas in the mouth whereas it can’t be reached by just brushing the teeth. These areas are where more bacterias and plaques develop. Here at The Smile Company Dental Care, we provide Professional Teeth Cleaning to ensure the patient’s oral health.
What is a Professional Teeth Cleaning
Professional teeth cleaning refers to deep cleaning that involves the removal of plaques and tartar which can be roots of infection and oral diseases. Since tartar can’t be removed by just brushing and flossing, professional teeth cleaning is recommended. Professional Teeth cleaning plays an important factor in maintaining a healthy oral practice.
Does the Procedure Hurt?
Many patients have a misconception about the procedure. They thought that it is painful but, professional teeth cleaning does not hurt. It is a non-surgical procedure which makes the process non-invasive.
What to Expect during the Procedure
Before the procedure starts, an examination of the patient’s the teeth will be conducted. The dental hygienist uses a small mirror during the physical exam of the teeth to check if there are any signs of gum issues. If there is a gum problem, the dental hygienist will ask the dentist if it is okay to proceed with the treatment.
The next step is the removal of plaques and tartar. With the use of the device called scaler, the dentist will remove the tartar and plaques around the teeth and gums. The patient might hear scraping during the process, but it is normal.
After the scaling of the teeth, the dentist will use a high-end electric brush for deep cleaning and make sure that there is no tartar left.
Polishing the teeth is the next step. The dentist will apply a gritty toothpaste to scrub the teeth gently.
After the teeth polishing, the teeth will then undergo expert flossing. Flossing can be done at home, but it makes a big difference when an expert does it. They know the areas where to floss and targets any trouble spots.
Rinsing of the mouth. After an expert flossing, mouth rinsing is done to get rid of any debris from the earlier process.
After rinsing, the dentist will apply fluoride to the patient’s teeth to protect the teeth and reduce the risk of decay and cavities.
Professional Teeth Cleaning is essential to ensure one’s dental condition. It keeps the patient plaque-free and confident when smiling. Visit your dentist if you want to undergo such treatment.
