What are the process of teeth cleaning? is it harmful? how much it costs?

Dentist,
What are the process of teeth cleaning? is it harmful? how much it costs?
Teeth cleaning is done by ultrasonic scaling and polishing. It is not at all harmful but during the procedure a bit of hypersensitivity might result. Only contraindicated in those patients having cardiac pacemaker. Costs around 1500.

I have braces on my teeth are becoming yellow day by day though I brush them twice.

I have braces on my teeth are becoming yellow day by day though I brush them twice.
It is naturally difficult to clean your teeth with your braces on. Also the cement used to glue the braces onto the teeth also tends to get yellow with time. Use an orthodontic toothbrush twice daily. Use a mouthwash regularly. Scalling'll help u. Worry not. All this discomfort'll b worth the smile you get after the treatment.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Until then keep soaked cotton pellet of clove oil on the tooth for an hour. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Hello sir. I am subrat . I have gap in between my teeth plus my teeth are slowly becoming yellow. What should I do ?
Its depend upon how much space in between teeth. If space is less then we can do composite filling or if space is more we have to do crowns. Due to some stains teeth are becoming yellow. Do proper brushing twice daily and if still teth are yellow then do bleaching.
