You can’t beat the feeling of thorough teeth cleaning

We all know the importance of teeth cleaning and flossing, but a toothbrush will only get you so far. Over time plaque and tartar adhere to our teeth and, if left for long periods, it can present more serious problems like gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities.

When your gums are inflamed, they are more vulnerable to nasty bacteria that if left, can lead to more serious health issues like heart attack, stroke and diabetes, and dental issues like teeth extractions.

Why is professional teeth cleaning so important?

With the right tools and viewpoint, your dentist is in the best position to give you the professional teeth cleaning you need. Through the cleaning process we:

  • Remove plaque – plaque is a sticky film made up of bacteria, food particles and saliva that forms over the surface of your tooth. The bacteria in the plaque inflame the gums and can cause gingivitis.
  • Remove tartar – tartar is hardened plaque that has firmly attached to the tooth surface. Tartar forms above and beyond the gum line and can only be removed with professional teeth cleaning.
  • Polish teeth – lastly we remove stains and stubborn plaque that hasn’t been removed during the teeth cleaning process to leave you with whiter teeth and a smoother tooth surface.

By having this done every six months at your dental check up, and brushing and flossing your teeth daily, you will keep your teeth whiter and brighter and experience that clean mouth feeling for longer.

Should my child have their teeth cleaned by the dentist?

Yes! Professional teeth cleaning isn’t just for adults, with kids often in a hurry to brush their teeth they can often leave plaque behind and miss those harder to reach places. Having professional teeth cleaning done can also help your child to feel comfortable in the dental chair before a problem is present.
