Getting a professional dental cleaning at least two times a year can improve your overall oral health. Those who practice good oral hygiene regularly at home with brushing and flossing usually do not feel discomfort during a cleaning. But those who have failed to follow good oral health habits may feel uncomfortable with sensitivity during the dental cleaning. The dental specialist can use a painkiller before the cleaning to ease any discomfort. Here at Sandalwood Dental Clinic, expert dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are performed by friendly and educated dental specialists.
To complete the dental cleaning procedure, the process would include the following:
Eliminate tartar – Tartar is a hard plaque that can be found on the tooth cover both below and above the gums. It can only be extracted with special dental tools.
Eliminate plaque – Plaque is a sticky colorless film containing food particles, bacteria, and saliva. If plaque is not removed, bacteria will infect the gums, possibly causing periodontal disease.
Teeth Polishing – Polishing eliminates stains and marks that remain in the teeth.
