Teeth Cleaning

Teeth Cleaning, prevention is better than cure

Are you confident about keeping your teeth clean or are you unsure about your daily dental cleaning routine?

Are you worried that you are not doing enough to protect your teeth and gums?

We all want beautiful, clean teeth and try to look after our teeth as best we can by brushing, flossing and even using mouth wash. But is that enough to remove the toughest plaque deposits and give us a polished smile?

Why have your teeth cleaned by us?

However good our daily dental routine, very few of us indeed manage to remove every scrap of plaque. Over time, deposits of calculus (or tartar, as it used to be known) will develop. Calculus is a hard deposit on teeth that brushing will not shift. Removal requires the skills of either a dentist or a dental hygienist.

Many aspects of life are a lottery and dental plaque is no exception. Some people react very strongly to it and are at risk of developing much more severe problems such as periodontal or gum disease. If you’re one of these unlucky individuals, it’s all the more important for you to maintain an excellent standard of dental hygiene and to have your teeth professionally cleaned every three to four months.

You do play a part

Toothbrushing stops plaque building up. However, there is more to brushing than simply moving a bit of toothpaste around your mouth. You need to concentrate on your entire mouth to ensure you remove as much plaque and leftover bits of food as possible. Plaque is a film of bacteria that coats your teeth if you don’t brush them properly. It contributes to gum disease, tooth decay and cavities.

Good dental health begins with you. Follow this simple routine to keep your mouth clean and healthy:

  • Brush your teeth for two minutes, twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Use a small to medium size toothbrush or even better, an eletric toothbrush.
  • Use small circular movements to clean your teeth.
  • Change your toothbrush regularly, every 3 months.
  • Clean between your teeth using using either floss or inter-dental brushes every day.
  • Visit us regularly, we’ll tell you how often to keep everything in tip top condition.
