Teeth Cleaning

Bardon Dental Centre gives you that great clean teeth feeling and confidence

Technically known as a dental prophylaxis, having your teeth cleaned by our dentist at Bardon Dental Centre is an important hygiene procedure performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and evaluate oral health. Prophylaxis is also an important dental treatment for halting the progression of gingivitis (gum disease).

Gingivitis and periodontal disease occur when toxins from the bacteria living in plaque on the surface of the teeth cause inflammation in the gums. As a consequence of this inflammation the gums and bone surrounding the roots of the teeth are destroyed causing smelly prockets to develop which can become so deep that the teeth become loose, drift around and can even fall out.

This chronic inflammation can also cause increased risk of other complications including:

  • Reduced birth weight and premature birth
  • Unstable diabtetes
  • Heart disease
  • Dementia

Not only is prophylaxis an excellent procedure to help keep the oral cavity in good health and halt the progression of gum disease, but you will have that great clean teeth feeling and confidence that comes from a professional clean and tartar removal that only your dentist can provide.
