Cleaning teeth

Teeth cleaning is a method for removing calculus (mineralized plaque), which can still form despite diligent brushing and flossing, particularly in regions that are challenging to reach with a regular toothbrush. Usually, a dentist will handle it. If there is too much calculus buildup, professional cleaning may also involve debridement and tooth scaling. To loosen and remove deposits from the teeth, several tools or equipment are used in this procedure. While teeth cleaning can be done at home using a toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss, each person still needs a deeper, more thorough cleaning that only a dentist can provide.
