Teeth Cleaning



Why You Need Teeth Cleaning & Dental Exams ?

Stained and yellow teeth ruin a beautiful smile! This embarrassing situation can be avoided by having regular teeth cleaning here at AlRawi Medical Center.

To ensure a beautiful healthy smile for life, teeth cleaning at least twice a day is a “must” for both adults and children. Calcium and other substances from the mouth’s saliva continually moisten your teeth that help to keep them strong. However, over time, it leads to the building-up of plaque and hard deposits called tartar.

Tartar or plaque cannot be eliminated by mere brushing or flossing and if allowed to accumulate, they become the ideal conditions for bacteria to thrive on teeth and gums. It needs to be removed regularly by a dentist otherwise it may become a risk for gum diseases and even tooth loss. This is the reason why a six-monthly dental check-up & clean is recommended.

A tooth cleaning or ‘scale and polish’ involves removing the plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth, and leaving the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them and you have a better chance of keeping the teeth clean during your regular home care.
