PowerPoint Presentation: How important are regular dental check-ups: Dentists Phoenix Dentists Phoenix stress on regular dental check-ups. Visiting a dentists for a check-up includes two parts: first is the check up and second is the cleaning. The check-up part of the visit includes checking for cavities and to see if there is plaque or tartar deposits on your teeth. Plaque is a clear and sticky layer of bacteria, if not removed, it can harden and become tartar. You cannot remove tartar with brushing and flossing. If plaque and tartar build up on your teeth, they can cause oral diseases. Next, the dentists in phoenix check the gums. They use special tools to measure the spaces between your teeth and gums. Healthy gums have shallow spaces between them while the gums that are infected would have deeper spaces between them. The check-up also includes other parts of the body like tongue, throat, face, head, and neck. The purpose of this is to look for any signs of trouble, swelling, or cancer. The next step for dental check-up is cleaning. Brushing and flossing help clean the plaque from your teeth, but one can't remove tartar at home. During the cleaning, dentist uses special tools to remove tartar. This is called scaling. Scaling is a method employed to remove plaque and tarter. After the teeth are scaled, they may be polished and a gritty paste is used for this. It helps to remove any surface stains on the teeth. The final step is that is undertaken for dental care is flossing. The Dentist will use floss to make sure the areas between the teeth are clean. While dentists Phoenix follow all these steps when doing your check-up, they advise the patient to brush their teeth and floss on a daily basis. Regular dental check-up and cleaning are a sure way to have healthy teeth always.
