Teeth Cleaning Torrance
Teeth cleaning is the removal of plaque and tartar that get deposited on the surface of teeth over time. Since your teeth are covered in saliva which contains calcium; at times this calcium gets deposited on the surface of the teeth. If these deposits are left on the teeth for long, they provide ideal conditions for bacteria which cause tooth decay and gum disease to grow. sPlus, at times these deposits can get yellow, brown or even black in color giving your teeth an unsightly appearance. It is recommended that you get your teeth cleaned, professionally, twice a year to remove the buildup of plaque and tartar.
The process of cleaning the teeth is usually painless, however, some patients might feel mild discomfort or some pain if they have exposed dentine or sensitive gums. In the first step of your cleaning, your dentist will examine your teeth for plaque and tartar and will use a small mirror to examine your gums and check for signs of any gingivitis or other problems. The dentists will, next, remove buildups of plaque and tartar from between your teeth and the gum line by using a scaler to scrape them off. After this, the dentist will use an electric brush to brush your teeth to remove any leftover tartar. Next, the dentist will expertly floss between your teeth to ensure clean teeth and then ask you to rinse your mouth with liquid fluoride. If required, the dentist may give you a fluoride treatment to help prevent future cavities and ensure good oral health.
It is necessary, for good oral health and a beautiful smile, that you get your teeth cleaned professionally by a dentist regularly. Visit LOBO, DDS for an appointment today!
