Why Should I Clean My Teeth?

Having regular six monthly cleans is extremely important for your teeth and gums health. If a dental clean is not performed regularly a buildup of calculus and tartar will form and you may develop gum disease. The longer you avoid getting a clean done the more the bacteria will affect your bone and teeth, eventually making your teeth loose due to loss of bone. Gums will also start to inflame and they will bleed when you brush your teeth.

How Often Should I Clean My Teeth?

Depending on the health of your gums, dentists recommend getting your teeth cleaned every six months to maintain healthy gums and prevent gum disease from occurring. If you do have unhealthy gums then a dentist may recommend more frequent visits every 3 months to help your gum disease from getting worse.

Can Dental Cleaning Damage My Teeth?

Getting your teeth professionally cleaned does not damage the enamel of your teeth. Dental instruments that are used during the procedure are specifically designed to remove the bacteria, plaque and heavy staining from your teeth.

What Are The Benefits Of Cleaning My Teeth At The Dentist?

Getting your teeth cleaned at the dentist has many benefits. Regular cleans will ensure you keep your teeth for a very long time by preventing gum and bone loss.  Another reason why cleaning your teeth professionally is beneficial is that it will prevent your teeth from getting discoloured and stained making you teeth appear whiter, as well as preventing cavities from forming in the mouth, saving you more time and money.

Why should I get a dental clean if I clean them myself at home?

Even though we brush our teeth morning and night the minerals in our saliva harden and form into hard plaque. Unfortunately, you cannot remove plaque with  just  a tooth brush alone. The dentist has special instruments that are designed to remove plaque making your teeth nice and clean.
