Routine cleans helps to keep your mouth and gums healthy
Routine cleans at your dental clinic are an effective way to remove plaque, tartar build-up and stains. Plaque is the white film that forms over your teeth and continues to build up over time. There are millions of bacteria in plaque and it is one of the main factors that cause of gum disease and tooth decay. Tartar is a hard calcified deposit that forms on the teeth and can contribute to tooth decay and worsen gum disease.
The difference between a routine clean at your dental clinic compared to regular brushing and flossing at home is that dentists have a set of specialised instruments that aid in an optimal clean. These instruments remove the build-up without causing any harm to your teeth and gums. The results of a routine clean leave your teeth looking fresh and clean, and the general health of your mouth is improved.
