Dental Cleaning at Dr. BEENA GEORGE Dentistry

At Dr. Beena George Dentistry, the cleaning and recall visit includes the following:
  • Calculus (Tartar) Removal: In some cases, the plaque that has developed on the tooth surface can get cemented to the tooth surface. This plaque is called calculus or tartar. It accumulates above and below the gum line and can only be removed by specialized dental instruments.
  • Plaque Removal: Plaque may form a sticky, almost invisible film on your teeth. It causes inflammation in the gums as bacteria produce toxins (poisons, irritants), which can cause severe periodontal (gum) disease.
  • Teeth Polishing: Removing stains and plaque from your teeth with teeth polishing enables you to clean your teeth more thoroughly, which brushing and scaling are unable to do.

Brushing and flossing your teeth properly is essential.

Brushing and flossing are two of the most important things that help you maintain good oral hygiene. However, the correct technique must be used and done the right way. Be sure to visit your dentist at least twice each year to get your teeth professionally cleaned (remove plaque or tartar). By practicing good oral hygiene, you can maintain and enhance the natural color of your teeth and prevent serious illness and expensive procedures.

Thorough brushing and flossing will help you in:

Preventing Tooth Decay

Sometimes, complex dental procedures are required to treat tooth decay. This is a chief cause of tooth loss and can negatively affect your smile. Plaque deposited on the tooth surface erodes the natural enamel of the teeth causing tooth decay. Brushing your teeth daily can reduce tooth decay and prevent plaque buildup.

Preventing Periodontal Disease

Plaque that is built up on the tooth surface releases toxinsover time, which can cause gum disease. Periodontal disease is a serious and degenerative illness that leads to tooth loss, jawbone degeneration, and gum recession. Health problems in the mouth can cause issues in other areas of the body. The ideal way to remove plaque and calculus (tartar) from the tooth is with the use of a toothbrush. Brushing your teeth correctly can effectively remove plaque before it gets stuck in the gums.

Preventing Halitosis

Halitosis is also known as bad breath. Food particles that stay between teeth is one of the most common causes that leads to bad breath. Brushing and flossing regularly will help remove food particles, thereby reducing bad breath.

Preventing Staining of Teeth

Smoking, drinking tea, coffee, or wine are some of the major causes for staining or yellowing of the teeth. Ensure you brush your teeth everyday to avoid permanent tooth stains. Otherwise, these stains cancompromise your smile.
