Will it cause gaps in my teeth if I clean them from a dental clinic. If it causes gaps then how to clean it at home?

It's a misnomer that cleaning causes gaps between teeth. Gaps are usually prevelant before .n calculus / deposit get's accumulated. Between them we only clean the deposit present between those gaps in teeth. The hard deposit doesn't come off by itself .or with any home remedy. Kindly visit dentist. For the same .some times gums have periodontitis which is advanced gum disease patients come with. Which causes lot of bone loss gum loss and ultimately tooth becomes loose. And that leads to pathlogical migration of teeth .migration happens. And teeth move from its original place. Cleaning doesn't cause any of this it only helps removing irritant which causes. Gum disease.

It will not cause any gap. Basically gaps are already created by deposition of food which forms calculus (hard substances) in between teeth and when Dentist cleans those harmful deposits, patients complains of gap which again get healed after 7 days to 15 days. Its a wrong conseption. If you not clean those deposits it will result in tooth mobility, cavity and ultimately loss of tooth. Thank you.
No not at all scaling the teeth is a normal scientific procedure should be done by one and all for upkeep of dental hygiene.
Its a myth. Actually gaps are created when calculus is removed. But your teeth and oral cavity becomes infection free after scaling.
No not at all.
