Washing teeth and whitening teeth are very popular beauty projects now. Many people say that washing teeth will hurt teeth, so whether washing teeth is good or bad for health? I hope you will read this article carefully.
1、 Why wash your teeth?
There is not a close attachment between the gum and the root surface, but a shallow groove of 0.5-2mm, called gingival groove. Food debris and plaque are easy to accumulate in the gingival sulcus, and the gingival sulcus is an area that is difficult to clean thoroughly. At the same time, new plaque will form within half an hour after the teeth are cleaned. As time goes by, it will become calculus (just like the soft dirt accumulated in the kettle). These bacteria will cause gingivitis, periodontitis, bleeding, halitosis, and finally cause teeth to loosen or even fall off.
In order to reduce the inflammation of gingivitis and periodontitis, it is necessary to wash teeth with various instruments to remove the calculus and plaque attached between the neck and the gingival sulcus.
2、 What are the advantages of tooth washing?
A prevention of gum diseases is helpful for early detection of dental problems;
B clean treatment is the basis of further periodontal treatment or periodontal surgery;
C is the basis of other oral treatment, such as restoration of missing teeth, orthodontic treatment, oral and maxillofacial surgery, etc.
D. after tooth washing, the tooth surface needs to be polished to make the tooth surface more smooth, so as to slow down the attachment of plaque.
3、 Why can you have a different feeling after you wash your teeth?
A the gap widened after washing
The accumulation of calculus and gingival inflammation will lead to the local swelling of the gingiva to fill the gaps. However, the calculus has been removed after tooth washing, and the gingival swelling gradually subsides, so the gaps become obvious. In fact, this is the real face of the teeth, not caused by tooth washing.
B tooth washing can cause tooth sensitivity
In fact, the calculus is like a big cotton padded jacket. Once it is removed, the teeth will be exposed to the environment of 'long absence', which will produce various different feelings. If it is a healthy tooth, after a period of time, the abnormal feeling will disappear.
C it hurts a lot when I wash my teeth. It will bleed
The process of tooth washing is usually a little sore. If gingivitis is serious, there will be bleeding during tooth washing. Bleeding is a reflection of the degree of inflammation. Only careful brushing and tooth washing can eliminate the inflammation. After inflammation control or elimination, the bleeding will reduce or disappear.
4、 What harm does tooth washing do to teeth?
Objectively speaking, there should be. Teeth washing will cause tiny scratches under the electron microscope, but this is very slight. For the harm to human body caused by tooth stones, this is insignificant. Moreover, professional technique and proper vibration frequency will minimize the harm.
5、 The correct procedure of tooth washing
A disinfection: gargle with disinfectant. This process can effectively reduce the amount of bacteria in saliva, so as to minimize pollution.
B cleaning: according to the specific situation of the patient, the doctor cleans by hand or ultrasound.
C sandblasting: through special salt and high-pressure water for further cleaning of teeth, the effect of pigment removal is more obvious.
D polishing: it can make the teeth brighter and the tooth surface smoother by polishing, so as to slow down the attachment of plaque and pigment and the formation of calculus.
6、 How often do you wash your teeth?
The dentist will make a plan for each patient's future visit according to their different situations. Some patients have poor periodontal conditions and may have to come to the hospital for reexamination in two or three months, while some patients have good oral hygiene and may wash their teeth once every two or three years. In a word, it is more suitable for people to wash their teeth once a year or half a year.
Conclusion: tooth washing will leave tiny scratches on the surface of the teeth that can only be seen under the microscope, but the tooth tissue will not be damaged. After tooth washing, it is usually polished, which can make up for these fine rough surfaces and reduce the probability of pigment deposition or calculus deposition in the later stage.
