ImportanceofDentalScalingandHowtoPreventGumDisease

2023-08-21

Not only do dental cleanings make your teeth clean, but they can also prevent gum disease. On the internet, there are numerous and confusing controversies about teeth cleaning related to good and bad. There are some internet users who believe that teeth cleaning will make your teeth clean and your breath fresh, so regular cleaning is necessary. However, there are also many people who are against teeth cleaning, and they prove it through their own personal experiences:


"There was a lot of bleeding during the cleaning and it was very disgusting."

"After the cleaning, the teeth became sensitive and even a little loose, and I couldn't bite hard food for a week."

"After the cleaning, all my teeth became loose, it was horrible, I will never go back for another cleaning."


The truth is that neither of these sets of opinions is wrong. The main purpose of scaling is to remove plaque and calculus from the teeth. After a cleaning, your teeth will return to their original smooth, milky white colour.


However, if you have a lot of plaque and soft tartar on your teeth, then scaling will require more time and effort, so bleeding gums are a normal occurrence. After a cleaning, without the protection of plaque, your teeth are in direct contact with hot and cold foods, which can lead to tooth sensitivity. It's like feeling irritation in cold air after taking off thick clothes. This is the body's normal reaction, and after a period of adaptation, the teeth will return to normal.


For people who have not had their teeth cleaned for more than ten or even twenty years, the teeth have been surrounded by calculus and the tartar has accumulated between the teeth and under the gums. At this time for scaling, not only will it bleed, but after scaling, it will also be obvious that the gap between the teeth will become bigger and the teeth will be loose. This is because the teeth and gums in the accumulation of calculus led to a substantial shrinkage of the gums, once the removal of tartar, the teeth lost the support of tartar, and there is not enough gum protection, so it will be significantly loosened.


This is why some people say, "Whoever dares to clean my teeth, I'm in a hurry! My teeth are completely supported by tartar".


However, can you keep your teeth strong without cleaning? Of course not. If you have a serious tartar problem, a cleaning can save you from losing your teeth. If you don't address your tartar problem, your gums can suffer serious damage that can eventually lead to periodontitis and even tooth loss at a young age.


So, understanding this, we know that teeth cleaning can be beneficial, but it does lead to loose teeth! So what to do?


Generally, if your teeth are slightly loose, they will recover naturally after a cleaning. Scaling stops the damage that plaque can do to the gums, and the gums will gradually regain their health when they are not threatened and fit back into the teeth so that the teeth can regain their stability. If there is severe tooth loosening, you may have severe gingivitis or periodontitis, which will require further treatment to restore your teeth and gums to health.


The vast majority of oral problems, such as tooth decay, bad breath and periodontitis, are caused by plaque and calculus. Teeth cleaning is a great tool for both of these problems, and if you have your teeth cleaned regularly, then problems such as periodontitis, which plague so many people, will no longer bother you.


Teeth cleaning is really an important part of keeping your oral health, through which you can effectively prevent oral diseases and keep your teeth strong and beautiful. Therefore, we should pay attention to teeth cleaning and visit a professional dental clinic regularly in order to avoid more serious health problems caused by oral problems.
