Professional teeth cleaning is a preventive measure that aims to help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss and other dental problems. You may think that brushing and flossing your teeth or rinsing with mouthwash is enough to keep a healthy mouth, but wait until a sore gum or toothache occurs one day.
Harmful oral bacteria can still grow in your mouth despite your best efforts to clean your teeth at home. These bacteria are known to cause gum disease and are recognised as the same bacteria linked to heart diseases and other conditions. Your dental team will work together to manage your oral health and determine the type of dental cleaning that is best for you.
