Signs That You Need a Dental Cleaning Session

Posted by VARNI DENTAL on Jun 7 2022, 11:11 PM

Brushing and flossing the teeth at home are two steps that help keep the teeth healthy. But it is also equally important to visit the dentist for a dental cleaning session. It helps remove the buildup of plaque and tartar from the teeth and provides extra protection to the mouth from dental diseases. 

Some of the signs that signal you require a dental cleaning session have been listed below.

Bleeding Gums

If you notice that your gums are bleeding when you floss or brush, or if you notice blood in your spit, make an appointment to see your dental team. It may signal gum disease caused by the buildup of plaque on the teeth.

Bad Breath

Bad breath is a symptom of many dental problems. But it can also be a sign of gum disease, which needs to be treated. Scaling and root planing, which is performed during a dental cleaning, is a treatment that removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line.

Plaque and tartar will accumulate on your teeth if you don't brush and floss regularly. These substances contain bacteria and toxins that cause bad breath.

Discolored teeth

If your teeth have brown spots, yellow streaks, or other discolorations, they likely turned that way because of plaque buildup. This sticky substance can coat your teeth, making them difficult to clean. Over time, your teeth can develop a yellowish-brown hue.

Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity may indicate the need for cleaning. When you receive a cleaning, the hygienist will use a scaling tool to remove plaque and tartar from your tooth’s surface. If you have tooth sensitivity, you may experience discomfort. Your teeth may be sensitive to hot or cold foods and drinks. 

Dry Mouth

One of the signs that you need a cleaning session is if you notice that your teeth are feeling dry. This is especially common if you have a dry mouth due to various dental or other diseases.
