When we talk about the maintenance of oral hygiene, patients often identify this as regular tooth brushing of at least twice to three times a day, flossing, gargling with a mouthwash, and tongue scraping. Such home care practices do encourage better oral health and will prevent the potential build-up of plaque that may bring about several problems such as tooth decay and bad breath.
However, aside from these oral health practices, it is also important that patients are aware that in adjunct to daily mouth care, professional teeth cleaning and check-up should also be done.
Role of Dental Cleaning
Teeth cleaning generally helps with providing a whole mouth clean. It involves removing plaque and calculus build-up which are where bacteria is located. This bacteria kick starts the progression of gum disease and tooth decay if they are not removed as soon as possible.
Aside from that, bad breath may also result as a complication due to neglect of a regular professional dental cleaning.
For a visit for dental cleaning, your dentist near Parramatta not only does professional teeth cleaning and scaling but also proceeds with a regular check-up to identify other problems and to validate the state of your mouth health as well as proper patient education so you can maintain good oral health even outside the dental clinic.
