Summer is over, and it's time for a teeth cleaning
The days of hot weather, relaxing swims at the beach, and festivals are overas we usher in the fall; it’s time to say goodbye to summer and get back to our normal professional and personal lives.
Summer wouldn’t be summer without sweet treats: ice cream, snow cones, cool drinks…and all that ends up damaging the teeth. Which is why recommend a post-summer teeth cleaning to prevent potential oral health problems.
What is a teeth cleaning?
A teeth cleaning mainly involves removing accumulated plaque or tartar both on the teeth and under the gums. The specialist who performsthe cleaning is the dentist or the hygienist.
The teeth cleaning treatment at the Casanova25 dental clinic is performed with ultrasound devices. The cleaning takes approximately 30 minutes.
Once-a-year teeth cleanings are generally recommended. Obviously, however, each patient is different and the dentist will determine if multiple cleanings or treatments are necessary.
Does it hurt to get your teeth cleaned?
The answer is no. Teeth cleaning is generally painless and local anesthesia is not required. There are, however, patients who suffer from severe dental hypersensitivity who might find a teeth cleaning uncomfortable. In these cases, any post-cleaning sensitivity will disappear after 24-48 hours.
Advantages of teeth cleaning
The main advantage to getting your teeth cleaned is that it prevents oral problems like tartar, halitosis, gingivitis, periodontitis, etc. by eliminating bacterial plaque and superficial stains. Also, gum inflammation is reduced and the teeth’s enamel is strengthened for a clean and healthy mouth.
