Plaque and tartar get accumulated on the ‘hard-to-reach’ parts of the mouth over time despite brushing and flossing regularly. They are often seen on the rear surfaces of the frontal teeth, in the intersection between two teeth, on the posterior teeth, occlusal grooves, etc. Removing them would require professional dental assistance, which is why we suggest patients go for oral cleaning sessions at least once every six months.
What is oral cleaning?
Oral cleaning comprises two procedures, namely, scaling and root planing. They are procedures that help to get rid of the tartar deposits from the surface of the teeth and the roots, respectively. They are mildly invasive, meaning the natural tissues of the mouth wouldn’t have to be extracted, nor would it cause a lot of pain.
