Why Dental Cleanings are Essential

Why Dental Cleanings are Essential

Dental cleaning gets rid of all the hard and soft deposits on the teeth and get rid of the external stains on the teeth.  Dentists always recommend an examination and a dental clean together so that we can identify any problem in the mouth.

A professional dental cleaning will go a long way in getting those healthy teeth and gums that you longed for. Get in touch with your dentist in Altona for an affordable and efficient dental cleaning.

It is a well-known fact that you need to practice good oral hygiene measures at home. Brushing must be done twice a day and flossing needs to be done every night. In addition, we need professional dental care. A dentist uses special equipment to remove calcified deposits and ensure deep cleaning which is not possible at home. A dental cleaning, however, removes extrinsic stains on the teeth but does not change the colour of the dental enamel. The only way we can whiten our teeth is by bleaching them.

Reasons Why You Need Dental check up and clean

  • A dental check assures there are no serious issues associated with your teeth and gums . Your dentist in  Altona can identify potential problems, if any and treat them before they become more serious. Potential problems could be anything from a tooth decay to gum disease or oral cancer.
  • Regular dental cleaning limits the tartar and plaque that keeps accumulating on your teeth. It also prevents the resulting bad breath. Some foods also cause staining and discoloration of teeth, in such cases you may require teeth whitening, which we offer at our practice in Altona.
  • It is widely known that you must brush and floss twice a day. However inspite of this there could still be a buildup of plaque and calculus on the teeth. This leads to infections, that could have otherwise be prevented with regular dental cleaning.
  • Prevention is better than cure. Visit our surgery in Altona to identify any oral problems. Your oral hygiene is the first step to ensure overall health.
