Dental Cleaning and Consultation
- Do I really need to have my teeth professionally cleaned?
Yes. Even if you brush and floss after every meal and before bed, bacteria-harbouring plaque can accumulate in the tiniest crevices, pits and grooves. Overtime, the teeth will begin to decay or gums will become weak, which may result in pain and partial or total tooth loss. To prevent this professional cleaning(Scaling) is important.
- What should I expect at my cleaning and consultation?
Your cleaning and consultation will consist of a clinical examination of the teeth and gums. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you may also require x-rays for a more comprehensive view of your teeth. You’ll also consult with Dr. Shiva Sankar about any oral health problems you may have been having or questions that you may have. We use ultrasonic scaler a special instrument to remove hardened plaque,calculus from your teeth. Finally, your teeth will be polished .
