A dental cleaning, also known as a prophylaxis or teeth cleaning, is a routine dental procedure that involves removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. Plaque is a thin film of bacteria that forms on the teeth, and tartar is a hardened form of plaque that can only be removed by a dental professional. If left untreated, plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
During a dental cleaning in Marbella, the dentist or dental hygienist will use a variety of tools, including a scaler, a toothbrush, and a polisher, to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. They will also floss between the teeth to remove plaque and food particles that may have become stuck in the spaces between the teeth.
After the cleaning, the dentist or dental hygienist may apply fluoride to the teeth to help strengthen the enamel and prevent cavities. They may also provide instructions on how to properly care for your teeth and gums at home, including brushing and flossing techniques.
Dental cleanings are an important part of maintaining good oral hygiene and are typically recommended every six months to one year, depending on an individual's oral health needs.
At R&H DENTAL our dental cleaning appointments are blocked off for an entire hour with our dental hygienist, this leaves plenty of time for an excellent cleaning, as well as oral hygiene instruction. Many patients leave saying how that was the best dental cleaning of their life!
