We are supposed to have our teeth cleaned after every six months. Usually, your regular dentist will give you a date when you will have to come back and get your teeth cleaned properly but mostly it is up to you. However, it is essential for you to get your teeth deeply cleaned twice a year. This is because your teeth are under a constant strain. The saliva in your mouth is good for your teeth but only for a few months.
The saliva is naturally gifted with abundant calcium; initially this calcium is good for your teeth. Whenever your teeth are lacking it, they can restore it from the saliva but there comes a time when your teeth have had enough of it and there is no more space for extra calcium. When this situation arises, the calcium starts building up around our teeth. This gives them an uneven look. However, the physical appearance of the tooth should be the last thing on your mind because these extra calcium reservoirs can make several other problems for you. These reservoirs will solidify and have gaps between them. These gaps are then going to be filled with bacteria so you need to take care of these calcium deposits before it is too late.
The dentist in Diamond Bar will use different kinds of tools to get rid of these little problem makers. These specially designed tools will take care of the plaque and the excess calcium without causing any damage to your teeth. The first tool that is mostly used by the dentists is Fine Hand tool.
The Diamond Bar dental group first uses the ultrasonic tools to clean the thick layers of plaque away from your teeth and then they take out these fine hand tools to clean the remaining plaque. The fine hand tools include curettes and scalers. They are used to softly tear the reaming part of the plaque away from your teeth. As they have a fine tip, they can easily reach the tiny places and remove the plaque from there. They are curved to match the shape of the teeth; this helps the dentist to remove the remaining impurities out of the teeth with ease.
Once the dentist is done with that, he or she will polish your teeth. Polishing is something that is done within a few minutes and there is no pain or irritation involved. The dentist will first apply some prophy paste to your teeth and then polish your teeth with a hand held tool with a soft tip. It is actually a rubber cup that gently polishes your teeth and makes them shiny.
