Dental Stone Cleaning

What is the dental stone cleaning?

Gum problems are usually caused by plaques that accumulate on or around the teeth. The best way to get rid of these plaques is to brush the teeth twice a day, use dental floss and take a mouth shower. However, no matter how well you take care of your teeth, there may be places you cannot easily reach between the teeth. In these areas, structures called tooth stones, which are difficult to clean by brushing, are formed by accumulating plaques. When dental stones are not cleaned, it may cause more plaque to accumulate and gum diseases. The dentist should be consulted so that gingival problems do not progress further.

How to apply?

Dental stone cleaning should only be done by a dentist. Firstly, the teeth stones are cleaned with the help of ultrasonic devices or hand tools. In the other step the tooth is smoothed and teeth are polished. After polishing the teeth, the remaining plaques are cleaned. This process is not harmful for the teeth. Cleaning the surface of the teeth makes it difficult for bacteria and bacterial plaque to adhere to the teeth. After cleaning the dental stone, a layer called pellicle comes to the surface of the tooth. This layer is literally formed two hours after the dental stone is cleaned. Therefore, only water can be drunk for two hours after cleaning. As a result of this process, the teeth acquire an aesthetic appearance and are protected against plaque formation. The dentist will tell you how often you need to repeat this procedure.

Does cleaning the dental stone harm the teeth?

In adults, the biggest causes of tooth loss are gum problems and bones surrounding the teeth. Gum disease is caused by bacteria called plaques  that adhere to the teeth. When the plaques formed in the tooth are not cleaned, the plaques become dental stones and the accumulation of these plaques causes an increase in bacteria in the patient’s mouth. As a result, a pocket is formed between the tooth and the gums. The bacteria that are formed also secrete enzymes that cause the destruction of the bones around the teeth, resulting in tooth loss. Regularly going to the dentist protects you from dental and gum diseases.
