Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque and calculus from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their own teeth by brushing and interdental cleaning, and dentist can remove hardened deposits (calculus) not removed by routine cleaning.
Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if too much calculus has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth.
This will help to ensure your oral health and comfort, as well as assisting with the prevention against dental caries.
