A dentist from the City of Leeds was very concerned about the dropping standards of oral hygiene even though there are so many dental cleaning products available in the market today. People are still not very educated about how to protect their teeth and in turn, their health. The doctor even talked about the importance o getting regular checkups done so that any problems could be nipped in the bud. A thorough cleaning could also be set up during the time of the dental check up.
Dental scaling is the process whereby teeth are cleaned extremely well at the dentist’s office. It is done with the help of a jet of water that blasts into the space between the teeth and removes all debris and food particles wedged there. It also chips away at the plaque that coats the teeth. Plaque is an extreme health hazard and it has to be removed regularly.
Dental scaling is not an uncomfortable process at all, although you might experience a slight raw feeling immediately after the treatment. You might even bleed a bit, but this is because the plaque needs to be pried away in a few places, thereby causing the gums to get a bit hurt.
Dental scaling will result in you having fresh breath since most of the places where bacteria hide would have been removed. Similarly, all the food that the bacteria eat would also have gone. It is therefore very important for you to get dental scaling done twice a year at least.
