Dental cleaning involves removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time.
Teeth Cleaning In Islamabad
When we’re talking about teeth cleaning in Islamabad, we’re referring to the procedure of Scaling and Polishing. There are many instruments that can be used however, we always prefer ultrasonic scaling as compared to its counter. Without scaling and polishing, your oral health can end up in a cascade of events, to point some, tartar and plaque build-up, gingivitis, periodontitis, discoloration of your teeth and eventually tooth loss.
We recommend visiting your dentist or us at least twice a year for your regular dental check-up.
With that being said, let’s dive down to the procedure.
Teeth Cleaning Procedure Time
The time required for your dental cleaning always varies from patient to patient. However, to give you a brief idea, our dentists require 30 minutes to 1 hour. Again, that is totally dependant on the condition of your teeth.
Examination and Diagnosis
We have a saying at our clinic “A bad diagnosis has the worst prognosis”. That’s what differentiates our practice and our dentists from the rest of the clinics out there. The dentists working at Z Dental Studio believe in a good diagnosis. Therefore, even if you visit us for a treatment as simple as Scaling & Polishing, examination and diagnosis is the first and most important step.
During your check-up, our dentists will take a small mirror and examine your teeth and gums. Occasionally we’ll also use a periodontal probe to check for signs of inflammation, plaque level and we’ll visually inspect if you have tartar and calculus build-up.
In some cases, we might also require a couple of dental X-rays to check the condition of your teeth and bones.
Removal of Plaque, Tartar, and Calculus
The second step of getting teeth cleaning in Islamabad at our clinic is the removal of plaque, tartar, and calculus. We remove all of this with a tool called scaler.
Plaque, calculus, and tartar can be found between the junction of your teeth and gums. When we’re using a scaler you might get a feeling that we’re scraping your teeth but as a matter of fact, we’ll be removing the buildup.
As dreadful as that may sound, we make this procedure completely pain-free for our patients. Furthermore, dental cleaning in Islamabad can be avoided if you floss and brush your teeth properly.
