Professional Deep Cleaning
In a professional deep clean, your dentist or dental hygienist will use specialised instruments to clean your teeth and remove all the tartar in the hard to reach places. It’s important to have regular professional cleans to prevent gum disease, bad breath and other hygiene problems.
Tartar is a plaque that builds up around your teeth even with regular brushing and causes bacterial infections and bleeding gums when left untreated
Deep Cleaning or Professional Cleaning Procedure
Tartar is a plaque that cakes up around your teeth even with regular brushing – especially in areas that are hard to reach with your toothbrush.
In a professional cleaning, a dental hygienist (an expert in cleaning teeth) uses specialised instruments to clean the teeth of all tartar. The classic ‘scale and polish’ is a process where tartar is scaled off the teeth, and the tooth surface is polished smooth to make it more difficult for tartar to build up in future.
This is important to prevent decay of the tooth and gum disease. By ensuring that your teeth are professionally cleaned when needed, you can prevent bleeding gums, bad breathe and gum recession.
Why do my gums bleed when I brush my teeth?
Is this normal and why?
No, it is not normal for gum to bleed and ooze when cleaning your teeth or flossing.
The most common cause of bleeding gums is the build up of bacteria or dental plaque around your teeth. You see, each time you brush you teeth you may miss a few spots that are difficult to reach with your toothbrush, like towards at the back of the mouth, or in between your teeth or right along the gum line.
How is a hygienist different from a dentist? What should I expect at the appointment with my hygienist?
A dental hygienist is an expert in cleaning teeth.
They are a university trained dental professional that is solely involved in ensuring that your teeth are spotlessly cleaned at your dental visit, gently getting to all the tight spots and tricky areas to clean with their fine instruments.
After all that, if you want, they will run through some tips on how you can maintain the cleanliness and health of teeth.
