In such instances, professional dental cleaning becomes really important. In addition to just maintaining oral hygiene practices at home, a professional dental cleaning will ensure your teeth stay in good shape. The early yellow stains you see on your teeth are the first signs of plaque. Plaque builds up over time due to deposits of food particles, which if not brushed away effectively, leads to tartar. Gradually, the growing levels of plaque react with saliva and forms tartar. Thus all you need to do to stop its growth is to floss and brush after every meal.
Once tartar builds up on your teeth, it is primary step to gingivitis, which is an inflammation of the gums. By a dentist, you can easily get this problem treated without much pain or discomfort. But, if you don't treat gingivitis you are creating base for periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can cause loss of bone that supports your teeth and then the loss of tooth itself. Therefore, it is very essential that you know that maintain health of your teeth is really important. By following good dental hygiene and keeping a watchful eye on your teeth, probability is that you will need dental cleaning only once or twice in a year.
In the past few years, dental teeth cleaning techniques and technology has grown leaps and bounds. Thus the procedure can be completed in just one visit. Dentists prefer the use of ultrasonic cleaning equipment. Equipments like this speed up the process and does a better job than hand equipments. This equipment cleans not just your teeth, but also the sections between the teeth and the gum line, ensuring proper oral health.
It is an almost painless technique and produces very gentle ultrasonic vibrations at high speed. So, usually no anesthetic is needed for the procedure. Dentists also use rotary machine to remove the plaque left under the gums.
