Over time your teeth accumulate plaque and tartar that can cause decay and gum disease. While daily brushing and flossing are important for good oral health, it won’t protect your mouth totally from the build-up of tartar and other harmful bacteria.
What is Dental Scaling and Teeth Cleaning?
Professional teeth cleaning is a complete and detailed descaling and clean of your mouth performed by a dentist or dental hygienist. It is crucial for removing built-up tartar and plaque that has developed over time, filling in the gaps left by daily brushing and flossing.
The dentist uses special instruments to provide a deeper clean of these areas in a gentle way. Often they will examine your mouth and oral health in detail first, identify areas that require cleaning and use a number of devices to remove deposits from around your teeth. A cool mist spray is then used to wash and remove extra debris.
Why Have Dental Scaling and Teeth Cleaning?
Even if you brush and floss on a daily basis, it’s still critical to get your teeth cleaned by a professional dentist. We recommend visiting the dentist every 6-12 months to ensure the extra plaque and tartar deposits are removed. This will keep your mouth healthy for longer, and protect it from teeth decay and the effects of gum diseases (periodontitis).
If you have been feeling pain in your mouth, it’s a good idea to book a visit to the dentist. Some discomforts can be eased simply with a professional clean. The procedure is fast and generally with a low degree of discomfort. Most cleans last between 30 minutes and an hour, depending on the procedures needed.
