Not everyone needs a smile makeover and just look for general dentistry like a dental cleaning. A dental cleaning is one of the most popular treatments sought by walk-ins at our dental clinic in Cancun. The people who learn of our clinic while already on vacation usually decide to get something “simple” to check the service of our staff with a dental cleaning or perhaps teeth whitening. This allows them to make their minds and start planning on getting crowns or even dental implants for the next time they visit.
Why are dental cleanings a great option in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry? They are fairly quickly unless you require a deep cleaning because you have a periodontal disease. A dental cleaning gets rid of the plaque. The plaque contains many different types of microorganisms and mineralizes until it becomes tartar that can lead to other infections. These bacteria become a biofilm, and when this dental biofilm hardens, it becomes tartar, which is difficult to remove. Dental plaque can lead to the appearance of cavities in a patient’s mouth, as well as diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis, among others.
The growth of micro-colonies of bacteria increases the thickness of the biofilm. Bacteria tend to grow rapidly by increasing the density of cells within the plaque. On the surface of the teeth, there are intact and tightly packed groups of bacterial cells. Dental plaque should be controlled with proper brushing, flossing, and use of mouthwashes with fluoride, as well as a professional cleaning by a dentist or hygienist.
