Flossing and brushing may not be enough to prevent the onset of dental issues. In order to prevent dental problems, professional teeth cleaning by an expert dentist is required in addition to brushing and flossing. Teeth cleaning is also called Dental Deep Cleaning, and (in the profession) Root Scaling & Planning.
According to majority dental doctors, you should visit your dentist twice a year and preferably get your teeth cleaned by a professional dental doctor. Dental deep cleaning is required for a buildup of plaque, calculus (tartar) and stains due to tooth decay and gum diseases, namely:
This is a common gum disease in which gums get puffy red, swollen, and bleed easily. It’s usually cured with Professional Dental Cleaning and good oral home care. If proper treatment of gingivitis is not taken, it causes inflammation in the gums and begin to detach from your teeth, leaving little pockets around the tooth. Small spaces between gums and teeth (pocket) trap bacteria in plaque that can’t be removed with a toothbrush. Plaque that is not removed hardens and become tartar (calculus). Plaque and tartar buildup causes further irritation and gum diseases. A person should be more cautious in the following conditions: smoking addiction, HIV Infection, diabetes, aging, and certain medications.
Advance progression of Gingivitis. With time, bacterial plaques spread and produce toxins that cause inflammatory damage to teeth supporting bone and tissue. It has mild symptoms but can result in a complete loss of teeth if left untreated.
The procedure includes:
Scaling involves the use of an ultrasonic vibration tool and water spray to dislodge the plaque from the teeth and enamel. Plaque chunks of significant sizes can be removed manually by a scraping tool on and in between the teeth. Also, analgesic can be applied to remove any sensitivity or pain during the procedure.
The hygienist uses a rotating scrubber tool to gently scrub and polish the teeth followed by flossing and any application of a fluoride solution to ensure and enhance integrity of the enamel.
It all depends on your Oral health and your doctor’s diagnosis. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends regular dental checkup, at intervals suggested by a dentist to sustain healthy oral hygiene. In light of new research, advertised in the Journal of Dental Research titled “Patient Stratification for Preventive Care in Dentistry,” the ADA wants to remind consumers that their dentists should tailor the constancy of their regular dental checkup according to their current oral health status and history. Many dentists may require you to undergo the procedure every 3 or 6 months. Healthy and clean teeth are not only part of a beautiful and social smile, but they are linked to overall systemic health.
