Maintain the foundation of dental health with teeth cleaning near Keysborough

Our teeth have a huge influence in how we look, and how we feel about ourselves. Not only this, they do have a bearing on our overall health as well and new research continues to show the link between dental health and cardiovascular health. This is why it is absolutely essential to keep our teeth, gums and mouth healthy to maintain oral and overall health. After all, when it comes to health, prevention is always, always better than cure.

At J.E. Dental, we offer teeth cleaning services as an integral part of our focus on preventative dentistry, at our clinic near Keysborough.

Why do you need professional teeth cleaning?

Despite the daily dental hygiene, you might follow at home, there is a small degree of calculus and plaque that tend to develop and grow around your teeth every single day. If this is not taken care of, then over time, you will have plaque can move down the tooth and damage the supporting jawbone, which can weaken the overall structure. There will also be food particles remaining in difficult to reach places, which slowly decompose and contribute to decay.

Professional teeth cleaning, also called scaling, can help remove the stubborn build-up of plaque and tartar, as well as surface stains and food particles lodged between teeth, which are breeding grounds for bacteria, and one of the root causes of teeth decay and gum disease. Removing plaque doesn’t allow these decay causing bacteria to thrive. Scaling is thus an essential aspect of preventative dental care, and maintaining good dental health.

What can you expect during the procedure?

  •  The procedure begins with a thorough physical examination of your mouth, using a small mirror that helps to examine each and every tooth.
  • In cases where there is heavy plaque build-up, we will use a strong jet spray along with an electric scaler to loosen it up and clean it away. This will be followed by a manual scaler, to remove particles lodged in between teeth.
  • Lastly, we will scrub and polish your teeth to ensure a thorough clean, and a refreshed feeling for you.

How often do you need get professional scaling done?

While daily brushing and flossing are a great way to keep teeth clean on a daily basis and get rid of residual food particles, there is nothing quite like professional teeth cleaning to make your mouth feel cleaner and fresher. It is recommended that this procedure be done once in six months, along with a comprehensive dental check-up as part of your dental care routine.
