Teeth Cleaning & Dental Bleaching

Teeth Cleaning

tartar cleaning in romaEven if you practice the best oral hygiene, there are bacteria in your mouth. These bacteria, along with proteins and food byproducts, form a sticky film called dental plaque. This film coats teeth. Plaque is most prevalent in areas that are hard to clean -- like the back teeth -- just along the gum line, and around fillings or other dental products.

Every time you eat, these bacteria secrete acids that can damage tooth enamel and lead to cavities. The acids can also cause inflammation and infection to your gums. But, if you remove plaque regularly with proper hygiene practices, youtartar cleaning in roma can prevent this assault on your teeth from leading to permanent tooth decay.
A bigger problem arises if plaque is allowed to remain on your teeth and harden. That can happen after just 26 hours. When this occurs, the plaque hardens into tartar, or dental calculus. Because it has mineralized onto your teeth, tartar is far more difficult to remove than plaque.

If this is the case, the acids releasedby the bacteria in your mouth are more likely to break down tooth enamel. That leads to cavities and tooth decay. Tartar that develops above the gum line can be especially serious. That's because the bacteria it harbors may irritate and damage gums. Over time, this inflammation can lead to progressive gum disease.

Once tartar has formed, it is important to realize that only a dental professional will be able to remove it from your teeth. Make sure to visit your dentist every six months to remove any plaque and tartar that might have formed and prevent further complications. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridment. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits.

Dental Bleaching

dental bleaching in romaDental bleaching in romaDental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry. There are many methods available, such as brushing, bleaching strips, bleaching pen, bleaching gel, laser bleaching, and natural bleaching.
Bleaching methods use carbamide peroxide which reacts with water to form hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide oxidizing agent penetrates the porosities in the rod-like crystal structure of enamel and bleaches stain deposits in the dentin. Power bleaching uses light energy to accelerate the process of bleaching in a dental office.
