Many people believe that cleaning or scaling the teeth at the dentist’s office is wrong and may cause damage to the teeth due to the loosening of the teeth after cleaning in very advanced cases. However, this is a false belief because this the loosening is actually due to the accumulation of tartar on the tooth for a long time, which leads to the loss of the jaw bone and feeling of teeth looseness. After the process of cleaning, the teeth and gums return to their health and help in the treatment of what may have been detrimental to your health, due to the formation of these bacterial elements in the mouth. Therefore, you should visit the dentist periodically every 6 months to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Many people neglect the importance of cleaning teeth at a dentist's office. Cleaning the teeth in the clinic is important to remove the bacteria, plaque and tartar accumulated on the teeth and usually the rate at which these elements accumulate varies from person to person based on several things:


  • The person's frequency in cleaning the teeth in the house using a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and mouthwash.
  • The amount of salts present in the saliva.
  • The amount of saliva flowing from salivary glands which varies from person to person.
  • pH of saliva.
  • The presence of fillings that do not properly fills the edges of a cavity.
  • Crowded teeth or the presence of spaces between the teeth.
  • Not using the sides of the mouth in the process of chewing food.


These elements should be removed at the dental clinic because their accumulation leads to gum decay and subsequent formation of cavities. In addition, this neglect can allow food waste to accumulate at these sites, which leads to gingivitis and bloody gums when brushing teeth at home. This may also cause foul mouth odor.
