Myths of Tooth Cleaning

Myths of Tooth Cleaning

Dentists would recommend getting your regular teeth cleaned every 6 months or  once in a year depending on your oral hygiene.

Tooth cleaning is also called scaling or oral prophylaxis by dental terminology. But often people are a bit scared to get their teeth cleaned.

Here are the few often asked questions which people have and their clarification given by dentist

Tooth cleaning created gap between the tooth

  • Hard substance called calculus which is filled by bacteria is present between the teeth, the dentist removes only the calculus between the teeth and infection which is making the tooth weak and there will be a gap between the tooth as no calculus present after cleaning.
  • Hence, after teeth cleaning it normal to feel gap between as it takes time for inflamed gums to come back to normal healthy State

Tooth cleaning lead to tooth sensitivity

  • As the dentist, while doing the treatment of scaling, the dentist uses an ultrasonic scaler which has vibration power motion to remove the bacterial infection surrounding the teeth which involves little portion of cleaning beneath the surrounding tooth gums will lead to tooth sensitivity.
  • Hence, dentist would recommend desensitizer toothpaste for recommend period

Tooth cleaning will lead to outer layer of tooth structure ie enamel to strip away

  • Dentist while doing the treatment of scaling ultrasonic scaler machine with has ultrasonic tips which has very less minimal vibratory power motion to remove calculus but not the tooth structure
  • Hence, it is said that tooth cleaning will not remove any of your tooth structure while treating.

Tooth cleaning will lead to loose teeth

  • Many people believe that tooth cleaning will lead to tooth loss and will not get cleaning done which will lead to more accumulation of calculus deposition between the teeth and make him weak and tooth loose.
  • As the dentist cleans the tooth, there are chances that the tooth will become loose but free from bacterial infection, as whatever bone lost surrounding the tooth is lost but we can prevent further loss of tooth surrounding bone.
  • Hence it is advised not to delay tooth cleaning treatment.

Teeth cleaning leads to bleeding gums.

  • As the bacterial infection present between the teeth will lead to redness, inflammation, edematous gums. It is normal to see bleeding gums while scaling.
  • Hence, cleaning of teeth will remove all the bacterial infection of gums to come back to normal healthy gums.
