reduce the risk of decay and give the teeth their natural white colour back again...
Even with regular and thorough cleaning at home, sometimes tooth discolouration and/or gum inflammation are unavoidable.
A professional cleaning at the dental hygienist can prevent this. All persistent plaque and discolouration is removed — especially from the tooth pockets and spaces between the teeth. These are the areas which are unreachable for a normal toothbrush — where food deposits and bacteria accumulate and result in gum inflammation and tooth cavities.
The instruments used are Ultrasonic Cleaners; Powder Spray Cleaners; Emory Paper Strips; Brushes and Dental Floss.
A thorough polishing to leave the teeth surfaces smooth prevents plaque and discolourations from reattaching to the teeth.
Thus a professional tooth cleaning reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum imflammation and gives the teeth their natural white colour back again.
