Teeth Cleaning and Scaling
Even after brushing twice a day, food can get stuck on and between your teeth, leading to the formation of plaque. Plaque is a soft, sticky layer of bacteria that builds up on your teeth. Eventually, this plaque will harden and form tartar which stains teeth and cannot be removed by simple brushing. The bacteria also cause tooth decay and gum disease.
Professional teeth cleaning in Ballarat can help remove plaque and tartar, allowing you to attain a stain-free and pearly white smile.
Deep Cleaning Process
Deep cleaning in dental terminology is known as scaling. Scaling involves removing plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth. A follow-up visit may be necessary after scaling to see whether or not your teeth and gums are getting healthier and to ensure that there are no gum pockets or plaque.
Home Care after Scaling Appointments
If you are maintaining good oral hygiene at home and following post-treatment instructions, you should start to see a difference in your teeth and gums as they start getting healthier after the professional cleaning.
