Make sure that the current fillings, crowns, and restorations if any are well-maintained
Dental prophylaxis or dental cleaning is done by registered dental hygienists. When you come to our clinic for a dental cleaning, it will include the following:
Taking proper care of your oral health can prevent:
The calculus or tartar is removed. Calculus, if left on the tooth for some time, attaches to the surface of the tooth and needs to be removed. But if the calculus is formed below or above the gum line, it will require special dental instruments for its removal.
Plaque is removed. Plaque is an invisible and sticky substance that is formed on the surface of the teeth. It also leads to the formation of bacteria and food debris. The bacteria when formed will produce toxins that might inflame the gum and gradually lead to the start of periodontal disease.
Teeth polishing is done. There are certain stains and plaque which aren’t removed by tooth brushing and scaling as well. We will help remove it with the help of teeth polishing.
