The cleaning process begins with the removal of tartar. Tartar is plaque which becomes hardened over time and due to over accumulation. A dentist uses a special tool called the Scalar to remove it. In some cases the dentist may use a tool that employs ultrasonic sound waves to remove tartar.
The process of tartar removal is followed by polishing the teeth using a special paste. Dentists use a rubber polisher that can rotate and thus is able to do a very good job. Moreover, this cleaning exercise also makes the surface of your teeth very smooth. With smooth teeth surface, it becomes extremely difficult for bacteria and plaque to accumulate on the teeth. Dentists also undertake some extra tasks for children as their teeth are more vulnerable to problems.
The dentist would also run a few X-ray tests to make sure that there is no case of any hidden decay or periodontal malady in your teeth. Any lesions or cysts in the jawbone are also revealed by this.
X-ray examinations are generally optional.
The teeth are an extremely important part of your body. Not only do they make it possible for you to eat, but they also contribute to your looks. Moreover, absolutely no one likes a person with bad breath. Taking proper care of your mouth is necessary, and there is no one who can do it better than a dentist.
