Dental Cleaning is Crucial
Dental cleanings live a critical piece of keeping adequate verbal hygiene. Regular dental cleaning not only keeps your teeth and gums healthy but also allows your dentist to see what’s going on with your teeth so that problems like cavities or gingivitis may be treated early. Green Tree Dental recommends visiting the dentist at least once every six months. You may keep your teeth and gums in good shape and avoid significant dental problems between visits by visiting your dentist every six months for a dental cleaning1.
Cleaning of the teeth
Brushing and flossing the teeth at home is vital for proper dental health, but tartar is impossible to remove once it has formed on the teeth. So, during a typical dental cleaning, the dentist will “scale” the teeth with a specific metal tool to remove the tartar and plaque.
After removing tartar and plaque, the dentist or an assistant may polish the teeth with a gritty paste and a polishing tool to eliminate surface stains and brighten your smile. The dental expert will floss the teeth after the surface of the teeth has been polished to ensure that all spaces between the teeth are clean.
Cleanings of the teeth in between
At Green Tree Dental2, we urge our customers to maintain their teeth clean in between dental treatments. Brushing and flossing are essential for maintaining a healthy set of teeth. We recommend that patients wash their teeth with fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day. Make time to floss at least once a day and use a mouthwash to reduce the formation of plaque-causing bacteria. Mouthwash will also make your breath smell better!
Whitening of the teeth
Teeth whitening toothpaste, over-the-counter gels, rinses, strips, trays, and whitening products obtained from a dentist are just a few of the options.
People with no health problems, unrestored teeth (no fillings), and gums are great candidates for teeth whitening. Individuals with yellow teeth have the best results. However, this cosmetic procedure is not for everyone.
It’s never been simpler to put a smile on your face at home. You can experiment with various products, including rinses, gels, chewing gum, toothpaste, and strips.
If you decide to try teeth whitening at home, the American Dental Association recommends consulting with your dentist first, especially if you have any of the following conditions:
black stains or a solitary dark tooth
Several crowns or fillings
Peroxides, primarily carbamide peroxide, are found in at-home whiteners in concentrations 10% to 20%. Choose a product with a peroxide content that falls somewhere in the middle of that range. You can choose a higher level if the product does not irritate your mouth but provides the desired lightning effect. If you have any questions, your dentist can assist you in determining which whitener is appropriate for you.
Toothpaste that whitens
Because all toothpaste contains moderate abrasives, they all erase surface stains. Some whitening toothpaste includes mild polishing or chemical ingredients that help remove stains more effectively. You could spend anywhere from $1 to $20, though prices vary.
Whitening toothpaste only removes surface stains and does not contain bleach; over-the-counter and professional whitening products contain carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, which lightens the tooth’s colour deep down. Whitening toothpaste can brighten the color of your teeth by a shade or two. Prescription whitening at your dentist’s office, on the other hand, can lighten your teeth by three to eight shades.
