Oral Hygiene

Why Oral Hygiene is Important

 

Hygiene visits in many ways are the most important element of your dental treatment. It helps to prevent dental problems and is mainly carried out to get rid of dental plaque and tartar (calculus) which are the two main causes of caries (tooth decay) and gum disease .At your oral hygiene appointment the dentist will clean your teeth, using an ultrasonic scaler or hand scaler to remove the (dental plaque), which is a soft white looking deposit that forms on the surface of teeth. It forms when bacteria and germs combine with food and saliva. The ultrasonic scaler also removes hard calculus build up (tartar) which is hardened calcified plaque which sticks firmly to teeth. .Each session takes approximately 30 minutes or longer depending on which package is required.
