What do you mean by dental cleaning?
Dental cleaning and polishing is the process of removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and the surrounding gums. This gum and teeth treatment is recommended to be completed at least twice a year by a professional hygienist or a dentist.
What is the procedure like?
At Fourth Ward Dentistry, the first step is to assess the oral health of the patient before doing any procedure. Dr Raghav Sundaresh will check the health of your gums and teeth, and may recommend X-rays, especially if you haven’t had them done recently, to check for any dental problems that are not visible clinically.
After the X-rays, the cleaning process starts with a professional dental hygienist who is specialized to remove plaque and tartar with special hygiene instruments. The cleaning procedure takes around half an hour or an hour depending upon the tartar accumulation.
When the procedure is completed the hygienist or the dentist does a thorough polishing with a professional polishing brush or cup to give your teeth a glossy look along with flossing the interdental areas of teeth.
Why do we need professional teeth cleaning?
Every one of you needs professional teeth cleaning even if you have a shiny smile and you brush and floss. There are some areas in our mouth which can not be cleaned with a brush or floss so it needs a professional scaling to prevent the accumulation of plaque.
It is beneficial for you to get your teeth cleaned by the dental professional because it can lower your risk of other illnesses and systemic problems by lowering the number of pathogens in your oral cavity.
Should I go for a dental cleaning twice a year?
Yes, it would be amazing and beneficial for your beautiful smile to visit Fourth Ward Dentistry twice a year for a dental cleaning to maintain optimal health.
