Many patients fear going through the dental cleaning procedure because of the occasional noise prodding and some little jaw discomfort. However, for most, the process is a simple one with no pain at all.
We have Registered Dental Hygienists that are highly competent in performing professional dental cleaning (dental prophylaxis).
Some of the processes that you will go through in the entire procedure include:
Removing Plaque and Calculus (Tartar)
The human mouth is full of bacteria. When these bacteria form a coalition with food debris and mucus, they form a sticky colorless biofilm called plaque on the teeth surface. Brushing and flossing will help you get rid of the plaque. However, if you do not remove it, it hardens to form another layer called tartar. The new layer is hard enough that even brushing cannot remove.
Therefore you need to visit a professional dent or a dental hygienist to remove tartar from your teeth. The accumulation of tartar causes inflammation in your gums and can result in bone loss.
It may also bring about periodical dental problems like sensitive teeth. So we recommend regular brushing and flossing to remove the stubborn layer.
