Why have teeth cleaning?

MyLocalDentists icon page

Our Burwood dentists perform teeth cleanings in order to preserve or improve oral health. People frequently neglect to brush their teeth properly. In fact, their cleaning methods often cause more harm than benefit. Although dental floss, toothpaste, and a toothbrush can be used to clean teeth at home, only a dentist can give your teeth a more comprehensive cleaning.
You must visit our dentist on a regular basis to have your teeth cleaned. You may ask our dentist if you have any questions about the procedure, and he will assist you.

Benefits of teeth cleaning

Prevention of bad breath
Teeth cleaning helps you to fight bad breath or bad smell. Bad breath is often caused by plaque or underlying dental problems.
Prevention of disease and cavities
Plaque is eliminated during teeth cleanings. It can become tartar if it’s allowed to accumulate and cause tooth decay.
Early detection of dental problems
X-rays may be taken of a patient’s jaw, roots, and teeth during routine dental cleaning to look for issues that an simple oral examination cannot detect.
A brightened smile
Some beverages and foods can discolour your teeth. Teeth cleaning eliminates built-up stains, giving you shiny teeth.

What is the teeth cleaning procedure?

Our dentist will begin with a physical exam of your whole mouth. They will then examine your gums and teeth using a small mirror.

Regular flossing at home can prevent the accumulation of tartar on your teeth. Our dentist will use a scaler to remove tartar and plaque in between your teeth and around your gum line.

After that, they will floss your teeth to remove any toothpaste or leftover plaque from earlier teeth cleaning. Then, our Burwood dentist will give you a rinse that contains liquid fluoride to remove the debris.

The final stage of the teeth cleaning process is a fluoride application. This treatment is used to fight cavities and protect your teeth for months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What could happen if I don't brush my teeth?
There are many microorganisms in the human mouth. While some germs might seriously harm your dental health, others can be helpful. When harmful microorganisms build up on your teeth, they expel acids that irritate the gums and eat away at dental enamel, leading to discolouration, periodontal disease, and tooth decay. These conditions could lead to the development of more oral illnesses. Practising oral hygiene at home and getting professional teeth cleanings will help keep tartar, plaque, and bad bacteria away from your teeth and gums.
How can I keep my teeth clean at home?
Always brush your teeth in the morning, before bed, and after every meal. Additionally, you ought to use an antibacterial mouthwash and floss every day. This will help keep your gums and teeth healthy between teeth cleanings. Also, never use hard-bristled toothbrushes since they might make your teeth sensitive and encourage bleeding gums. Instead, replace your toothbrush every two to three months. Contact our experienced dental professionals if you have a toothache.
How frequently should I have my teeth cleaned by your dentist?
We recommend you have a professional dental exam and cleaning twice a year. Patients who have a history of oral diseases may need more regular dental treatments. Our Burwood dental practice is dedicated to giving you special treatment in a warm and welcoming environment.
How uncomfortable are dental cleanings?
Don’t worry! The dental treatment is totally painless. You will experience slight vibrations and pressure as our dentist scrapes the cleaning tool against your teeth. Let our dentist know if the vibrations or pressure are causing discomfort, and he will take all necessary steps to put you at ease. Our Burwood dental team is committed to providing personalised care for every patient and providing preventative procedures at reasonable prices.
