We recommend this procedure in case of heavy plaque and tartar deposits. Plaque is often very sticky, colorless film of bacteria that forms constantly on your teeth. It eventually builds into tartar if not removed every day. Its becomes difficult to see and examine the teeth and gums if the buildup is heavy.
So, it’s very important to remove the accumulation of plaque and tartar as it may lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
A heavy build up causes due to a lot of factors:
Xerostomia, which is also called as dry mouth.
Use of tobacco.
Poor oral hygiene.
Irregular professional dental cleanings.
We begin our procedure by recommending a numbing gel or offering nitrous oxide to make you more comfortable. This depends on the situation.
We use latest equipment’s to remove the plaque and tartar very carefully. We also apply an antimicrobial rinse. We end the procedure by carefully reviewing your home care routine.
