What is Teeth Cleaning and why is it necessary?

Teeth Cleaning also medically known as "PROPHYLAXIS" is a procedure of removing tartar which be developed even with regular brushing. Teeth Cleaning plays a vital role in oral hygiene and is basically the removal of plaque from the teeth. It is important as teeth cleaning prevents from cavities, periodontal diseases and other dental problems. Generally, people clean their teeth by brushing and flossing but a visit to a dentist is necessary for deep teeth cleaning which can be done by a dental hygienist as they can remove tartar which cannot be removed by regular brushing.

 

Do you need a Comprehensive Oral Dental Exam or X-rays?

We start with a comprehensive oral dental exam and digital x-rays. Your dental history is paramount to an overall picture. Your oral cavity is examined visually and radiographically to determine its present condition. Any oral dental conditions that are found are explained and a treatment plan outlined. Some conditions may be outside the scope of our dental practice and may require a referral to an outside specialized dentist or Oral Surgeon.

Why you should do Brushing and Flossing of your teeth?

You really don't need an explaination for why brushing is important. It helps in preventing plaque to deposit on teeth and also removes bad breath. Brushing is an excellent way to keep teeth clean and twice a day is recommended.

Along with Brushing, Flossing of teeth is also important in keeping mouth clean.

How Does Teeth Cleaning prevents Gum Disease?

This is a very important question you may have! Gum disease also known as "periodontal disease" occurs when mouth infection takes place and destroys the teeth. It basically occurs when there is too much plaque bacteria on the surface of the teeth. Poor dental hygiene is the main reason. With proper professional teeth cleaning procedures, Gum Disease can be prevented.
