Dental Cleaning

Protect yourself from painful dental diseases with routine dental cleaning.

Some stains such as plaque, calculus, tartar and nicotine can’t be eliminated by simply brushing the teeth. Since bacteria or toxins reside in plaque or tartar often cause cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal diseases, regular teeth cleaning helps you maintain oral hygiene and health. Incorrect tooth brushing, defective fillings or crowns, food residues between teeth, breathing by mouth, and malocclusion are the main cause of plaque. Get regular dental cleaning every 6 months to maintain healthy teeth and gum. For those with periodontal disease, it is recommended to get the regular dental cleaning every 6 months since dental scaling improves blood circulation of the gums, prevents inflammation and periodontal diseases.

What is Periodontal Disease?

It is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting tissues that surround and support teeth. It is caused by microorganisms that adhere to and grow on the surface of a tooth. Although periodontal disease starts out with light swelling of the gums and bleeding, if left untreated, it will lead to progressive loss of the underlying bone around the teeth and lose of teeth if further progresses. The primary cause of periodontal disease is poor oral hygiene. Thorough daily brushing and flossing as well as the use of an inter-dental brush are important to prevent the buildup of tartar and plaque.

Post Management after the dental cleaning

The purpose of dental cleaning is to eliminate tartar on the teeth surface which cannot be removed by regular teeth brushing. Avoid hot or cold food for a few days after the cleaning. You may experience light bleeding, hypersensitivity, and swelling of gums. However, these symptoms will disappear in a few days. Regular dental cleaning and correct teeth brushing will give you strong, healthy gums.

How to choose the right toothbrush: The best toothbrush is one that fits your mouth and allows you to reach all teeth easily.Use small headed toothbrush

  • Use soft-bristled brush
  • Replace it every 3 months or after you’ve had a cold
  • For many, a powered toothbrush is a good alternative. It can do a better job of cleaning teeth, particularly for those who have difficulty brushing or who have limited manual dexterity
