Teeth cleaning is a procedure for the removal of tartar that may develop even after brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach in routine toothbrushing. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement using ULTRASONIC SCALERS, AIR POLISHERS or sometimes hand instruments to remove deposits from the teeth.
It is recommend to get teeth professionally cleaned every six months. More frequent cleaning and examination may be necessary during treatment of dental and other oral disorders. Routine examination of the teeth is recommended at least every year. This may include yearly, select dental X-rays.
Good oral hygiene helps to prevent cavities, tartar build-up, and gum disease
