Need Your Teeth Cleaning?

Teeth Cleaning

For adults cleaning teeth, the vast majority of tooth loss is due to the teeth and bones surrounding the teeth Gum disease, thickness of the film layer, adhere to the tooth surface and plaque Called bacteria If plaque is not cleaned, it is converted into a calculus called calcification (calculus) Accumulation of plaque and abrasive teeth allows the destructive bacteria to multiply in our mouth.

At the end of the gap between teeth and gums is called the sinus and gingival stagnation This happens Bacteria are enzymatic secretions that cause bone destruction around the teeth. And lose teeth at the end. Clean teeth and rub with gum disease And lose teeth at the end.

Teeth Cleaning Procedure

The process of professional cleaning is not nearly as difficult as you think it to be. Depending on the condition of your teeth, the time a cleaning takes can vary. In most cases, it lasts between 30 minutes to one hour.

Teeth cleaning helps remove stains that cause your teeth to appear dull and discolored. Having a routine cleaning during an office visit isn’t just about brightening your smile. While brushing and flossing at home is essential to good dental hygiene, the more powerful techniques applied during a dental office cleaning remove plaque and other buildup you can’t get off at home.

Examination

The dental professional, usually a dental hygienist, will first examine your mouth to get a baseline. A special mirror will be used to examine your teeth and gums for signs of gingivitis (inflamed gums) or other issues. If an issue is detected, it must be resolved before starting with the treatment process.

Plaque and Tartar Removal

If they find any plaque and/or tartar, they will remove them with a tool called a scaler. Usually, plaque and tartar congregate near your gum line and between your teeth.

Our dentist removes plaque and tartar using a special scaler to safely remove the stubborn biofilm. Depending on how much tartar build-up you have, this process can take little time or a longer period to complete.

In fact, once your plaque turns into tartar there is nothing you can do to remove it at home. You will have to seek professional treatment. You have to make sure you brush your teeth constantly to prevent tartar from occurring.

Plaque on the other hand is a biofilm of bacteria that is very easy to remove considering it has a soft texture. Plaque comes from bacterial build-up due to poor dental hygiene. If your food gets stuck in the teeth, bacteria begin to feed on it and grow in numbers. While doing this, bacteria excrete byproducts that can erode the enamel, leading to cavities.

Cleaning with Toothpaste

The final step of a teeth cleaning session is to brush your teeth. Of course, using special materials and equipment. For one, the toothpaste has a sandy texture due to the presence of special grains in it. This rough texture has an exfoliating effect on the teeth.

Is Teeth Cleaning the Same as Teeth Whitening?

No, teeth cleaning and teeth whitening differ entirely from one another. Teeth whitening uses clenching agents to brighten your teeth and remove any pigmentation underneath the enamel. On the other hand, teeth cleaning doesn’t use any bleaching factors or attempt to remove discoloration from teeth. And it usually targets pigmentation on the surface of the enamel.

Teeth cleaning can only reverse yellowing and discoloration that occurs on the surface. If due to smoking or constant use of coffee your teeth gain a yellowish hue, teeth cleaning cannot reverse that. This is because the procedure does not contain elements that can penetrate the enamel.

Teeth whitening is a longer session that lasts around an hour where your dentist applies a hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth and then exposes them to UV light. The UV light activates the bleaching agents allowing them to get through the enamel and break down the stains.

Instead, you consider options like the Hollywood Smile. The Hollywood Smile is a procedure that uses porcelain shells to give your smile a complete makeover. These shells are fitted on the front of your teeth and can eclipse all your defects as well as give you a long-lasting bright smile.
