Will tooth washing loosen teeth? What's wrong with a tooth wash

If you wash your teeth, will it cause tooth looseness? What's the problem after you wash your teeth? Let's have a look

Truth: there are a lot of rumors about tooth washing, but the most popular one is that it will loosen the teeth. Although this is the personal experience of many people, it actually misunderstood the real reason behind it.

Clean the teeth without loosening them

Teeth cleaning, which is known as "tooth washing", actually refers to "ultrasonic periodontal cleaning", which is the most basic periodontal treatment. Its principle is to remove bacteria and inflammatory cells in gingival sulcus and calculus on tooth surface by using high frequency vibration generated by ultrasound and water mist washing. In addition, grinding and polishing and drug washing can also remove some exogenous pigmentation and reduce periodontal inflammation.

The plaque and calculus in periodontal tissue are not easy to wash away with water, and they are not easy to be removed when brushing. In the long run, they accumulate more and more, which is an important factor of periodontal disease. (for a detailed understanding of the hazards of dental calculus, please read the article on the theme station of health from 9 to 5: gum bleeding, not lack of vitamins.) at this time, greater mechanical force is needed to remove them, and ultrasonic cleaning provides such a force. More than that, the ultrasonic head and the operator's skills can go deep into what we usually can't get into at all

The following are the three normal discomfort after tooth washing:

1. After washing the teeth, you will feel the gap widened

After teeth washing, people with enlarged teeth gap basically suffer from oral diseases such as calculus and periodontitis, because the expansion of teeth gap and root exposure are the results of gingival recession caused by periodontitis. Most patients with periodontal disease often have a large number of calculus, which can cover up the tooth space caused by gingival recession. In addition, when suffering from periodontal disease, the gums are mostly swollen. After scaling, the calculus is removed, the gums swelling disappears, and the tooth spaces naturally appear

2. The teeth will be sensitive after washing

Cold and hot discomfort after tooth washing is related to root exposure. Once exposed, it is sensitive to external stimulation, especially cold and hot stimulation. When suffering from periodontitis, although the root is exposed, there is a large amount of calculus accumulation, which more or less plays a role of isolation. When we remove the calculus, the discomfort of cold and hot stimulation appears, but this is only a temporary phenomenon. After a period of time, the discomfort of cold and hot can be relieved until it disappears.

3. Bleeding during tooth washing

In fact, the amount of bleeding is often a reflection of the degree of inflammation. This kind of situation is similar to toothbrushing bleeding. It can't be because of bleeding that we don't brush or wash our teeth. On the contrary, only by brushing and washing our teeth carefully can we eliminate the inflammation. After controlling or eliminating the inflammation, the bleeding will reduce or disappear.

Place, clean the 'dead corners' around the teeth.
