Why Teeth Cleaning is Important
When you eat or drink, food particles get stuck on your teeth. These food particles attract bacteria that multiply and form a thin film over your teeth. This film is called plaque.
To keep the bacteria from growing out of control, your mouth produces saliva and gingival crevicular fluid. These liquids enter the plaque and kill bacteria. However, in the process, these liquids also interact with the plaque and produce a hardened form of plaque called tartar. This tartar is rough and scaly, which catches more food particles and bacteria creating an endless loop.
Brushing and flossing help to control the development of plaque. However, neither brushing nor flossing can remove the hard tartar deposits once they form. To remove tartar, you need professional tools that can scrape them off the surface of the tooth.
If you leave tartar to grow, it can cause more serious medical issues such as tooth decay, gingivitis, periodontitis, and bad breath.
How We Clean Teeth
To clean your teeth and remove tartar build up, we use special instruments and devices to scrape away or dislodge the hardened deposits. We work on each tooth individually until we’ve removed as much of the tartar as possible.
After cleaning your teeth, we smoothen out the surface of the tooth with a tool called a scaler. Then, we polish the tooth. Smoothening and polishing the tooth makes it look better while also making it harder for food, bacteria, and tartar to attach to the tooth.
