A good daily dental care routine coupled with regular visits to Indigo Dental will help you maintain excellent oral health. Daily brushing and flossing are helpful in eliminating the most harmful bacteria found in plaque. Professional teeth cleaning, also known as a “scale and polish” aims to remove plaque, stains and tartar that accumulates on your teeth.
Plaque is the sticky film that contains multitudes of bacteria and causes gum disease and tooth decay. Tartar is the harder, calcified deposit that forms around your teeth and can cause further decay. Your dentist has specialised instruments for the gentle removal of tartar, which uses mild vibrations to loosen larger pieces and mists of cool water to wash away loose debris. A dental mirror helps your dentist to identify any problems in the hard-to-reach areas in the mouth.
Early gum disease treatment may include tooth scaling and cleaning and advice on how to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Later-stage gum disease treatment may include deep scaling. Most patients at Indigo Dental Practice see the hygienist for scaling and polishing.
