Dental teeth cleaning is a process where your dentist will remove unwanted residual on your teeth including tartar and coffee stain. This cleaning process is more thorough compared to just brushing or flossing your teeth.

You may know you should clean your teeth once every 6 months. But why this is important?

What happen if you don’t clean your teeth for too long? Plaque build up may form a layer of hard substance on your teeth called tartar.

And this may contain thousands or millions of bacteria. When you chew your food, some bacteria may be mixed with the food and get swallowed into your stomach. This in turn may cause stomach inflammation such as the dreaded Helicobacter Plyori (HP) virus infection.

Prolong build up of tartar may also create difficulty to fully clean your teeth on your future dental visit.

And what happen if you clean your teeth once every 3 months? This shorter duration for teeth cleaning is not recommended too. Cleaning your teeth too often may harm your teeth and gum.

So remember to visit your dentist once every 6 months to have your teeth cleaned. Smile!
