Professional Teeth Cleaning

Plaque and tartar are two of the main enemies of good oral health. Plaque is a sticky film that forms on your teeth, and it can eventually harden into tartar. Tartar can cause gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss.

Professional teeth cleaning is the best way to remove plaque and tartar. It is a painless procedure that is performed by a dentist or dental hygienist. During a professional teeth cleaning, the dentist or hygienist will use ultrasonic tools to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. They may also use hand tools or polishing paste to smooth your teeth.

Professional teeth cleaning is not just about removing plaque and tartar. It is also an opportunity for your dentist or hygienist to check your teeth for signs of decay or gum disease. They may also take x-rays to get a closer look at your teeth and gums.

Lasers have several advantages over traditional dental instruments. They are more precise, which means that they can be used to remove decay and tissue with greater accuracy. This can help to reduce the amount of pain and discomfort that patients experience during treatment.

Lasers also produce less heat than traditional instruments, which can help to prevent damage to the surrounding tissues. This is especially important in areas where the bone is close to the surface, such as the gums.

In addition, lasers create a very clean wound, which helps to promote healing. This means that patients can often return to their normal activities sooner after treatment.

If you are looking for a painless and effective way to improve your oral health, laser dentistry may be a good option for you. Contact Dr. Dilip Dental Centre today to learn more about how lasers can help you achieve your dental goals.
