Dental hygiene - Professional teeth cleaning

Several studies have shown that a healthy and aesthetic smile can improve self-confidence and raise levels of self-esteem of dental patients. Trends show that more and more people undergo regular teeth cleaning appointments at dental practices. Nevertheless, many people still consider a professional dental hygiene to be an unnecessary luxury that they can completely replace with careful and thorough care at home.

 

This false assumption is rooted in the lack of knowledge that a dental hygienist is able to care for teeth, enamel and gums in a way that is nearly impossible to replicate at home. Rest assured that the time invested in a teeth cleaning at your local dentist is one of the best investments you can make in the long-time health of your teeth and your general well-being.

    What is a dental hygiene?

    The process of a dental hygiene or a professional teeth cleaning refers to the treatment that serves to keep the mouth, teeth, and gums clean and healthy. A teeth cleaning undertaken by a trained dental hygienist can be one of the best tools to fight off cavities, gingivitis, periodontics, bad breath and other dental related diseases.

    While many people may take a proper oral hygiene for granted and don’t worry much about their dental health, one should know that the state of our oral hygiene can have affect not just our teeth but also our entire organism.

    With bad tooth brushing techniques as well as improper cleaning agents or toothpastes, people often unintentionally create the ideal environment for an accumulation of dental plaque in the mouth. This plaque turns to tartar over time due to mineralization in contact with saliva. In addition to negative aesthetic aspects, the tartar can also become a health risk with potentially irreversible consequences.
