The Benefits of Routine Professional Teeth Cleaning
Your oral health depends on two factors: your willingness to brush and floss regularly and your commitment to seeing your dentist every six months for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning. You may wonder why you need to visit the dental professional so often if you are taking great care of your teeth and gums on your own, but even the most diligent patients can miss hard-to-reach areas of the mouth and leave themselves vulnerable to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Your six-month oral exam will ensure that your dentist spots any problems early in their development, but professional teeth cleaning may prevent those oral health issues, the most devastating of which is periodontal disease, all together.
Tooth Extraction or Tooth Removal
Tooth Extraction is removal of a decayed tooth. It is done in cases when it is not possible to salvage the tooth by any other dental treatment.
A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. Materials used for fillings include porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc). At Orthosquare our dental experts helps prevent further decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter with a ceramic filling.
Scaling and polishing
Scaling removes the hard tartar which forms on your teeth like scale inside a kettle. You can't remove it just by brushing your teeth. Scaling also removes trapped food and plaque containing millions of germs, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Stains from coffee, tea, cigarettes or red wine are also cleaned away when we polish your teeth.
