Teeth cleaning (also known as prophylaxis), is a procedure for the removal of tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach in routine tooth brushing.
Professional teeth cleaning includes teeth scaling, teeth polishing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth.
It is recommended in most cases that a patient should go to the dentist to have his teeth professionally cleaned every 6 months.
However, it is sometimes advised to have it done more frequent depending on the patients. Plaque and Tartar may form on teeth faster on some patients than others due to multiple reasons. Our dentist will discuss these reasons with you and determine the frequency of having professional teeth cleaning.
