Your dentist at Smile Centre India should begin by asking you about the health of your mouth, other health problems, medications and discuss how they might affect your oral health. They’ll then examine your teeth, gums and mouth to check that everything is as it should be. During a dental exam, the dentist will evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene, your risk of tooth decay, root decay, and gum or bone disease, your need for tooth restoration or replacement, your bite and jaw for problems. If there are any minor problems, they may be able to deal with them there and then. If something requires more work, they’ll ask you to book in for a follow-up appointment or may recommend visiting the hygienist for a professional clean.
Regular dental cleanings are an essential part of good oral hygiene, which is done to maintain the cleanliness of the teeth to prevent cavities and keep off gum diseases. During the cleaning, we will remove any plaque and tartar buildup and may polish your teeth.
The tartar removed has not quite invaded the gums and is removed using a scaler. However, when tartar build-up becomes too much, it can only be removed through deep dentist teeth cleaning. Deep cleaning of teeth goes beyond the tooth’s surface to remove calculus and debris that accumulates in the roots of the teeth. The sessions are quite demanding and sometimes require more than a single visit.
