Are you considering buying a plaque remover to try to clean your teeth at home as a dentist would? It’s for the best that you leave dentistry tools to the professionals. Only your dental hygienist and your dentist are trained to clean your teeth with such tools without causing harm to the soft tissues to your mouth. By attempting to use any dentistry tools such as a sharp metal plaque remover on your teeth at home by yourself, you may hurt your gums and cause trauma to your soft tissues. You may also damage the surface of your teeth, causing chips in the enamel. Safely removing plaque is fine with a toothbrush and floss. You should be brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day. For the harder to reach plaque and any plaque that has hardened into calculus, you will need to visit your dentist for a professional cleaning. Your dentist in Swindon will be able to remove the calculus and tartar from your teeth using a professional grade plaque remover. Your dentist will also be able to remove any residual stains with a polisher. If left to build up on your teeth without proper clean ups from your dentist, plaque will cause tooth decay and gum disease. The best care you can give your teeth is preventative care to avoid dangerous dental diseases.
