Does professional teeth cleaning and polishing harm your teeth?
Teeth cleaning and polishing are routinely advised but many myths surround owing to fear of damage teeth enamel or loosening of teeth.
Unlike the common perception, routine professional cleaning is highly beneficial in treating and preventing common dental diseases
When carefully done, the procedure has no/little after effects which may include reversible sensitivity or feeling of roughness over teeth - which gives the patients a false impression of damage to teeth
An ultrasonic scaler removes debris and plaque from your teeth which have penetrated into tooth surface by releasing acids - the newly exposed clean tooth surface accounts for initial sensitivity which is quickly restored in 24 hrs bringing you back to normal state
Sometimes your dentist may prescribe a de-sensitizing paste to quicken this action
The major benefits of routine cleaning in dental office includes -
A) treatment of gum disease
B) prevention of mouth odors
C) early detection of cavities and prevention of irreversible damage or need for root canal treatments'
D) higher teeth survival rate
E) improved overall health as studies have shown that bacteria in gums can lead to serious heart diseases
F) polishing also helps restore gloss and shine on teeth
G) also helps to follow up on previously treated teeth
