During cleaning, the plaque and tartar are removed from the teeth. It is a simple and painless process and ends in a visit, but the frequency of visits is not the same for all patients and is determined by the incident. According to the standard prevention and control protocol, it is to be done every six months.
Dental cleaning is necessary to prevent periodontal diseases in their initial stages and before causing irreparable damage to the tissues supporting the teeth (the gums and the bone of the jaw). Periodontal diseases, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss.
