At present, more and more people realize the importance of teeth cleaning to dental health, but in clinical practice, many people will ask doctors if there will be “tooth damage”, “tooth sensitivity” and “bleeding gums” after teeth cleaning ” and “grow between the teeth” and other issues. However, many people neglect the care after teeth cleaning. Scaling can make teeth healthier, but scientific nursing can make the effect of scaling more stable. Here are three things to keep in mind after cleaning your teeth:

teeth cleaning

Temporarily eat less hot, cold, and dark food after teeth cleaning

Some patients also have tooth sensitivity after teeth cleaning, which is mainly because the exposed tooth roots are surrounded by calculus before teeth cleaning, which blocks the hot and cold stimulation. In order to reduce pain, avoid contact with cold and hot food for a short period of time after teeth cleaning, so that the teeth have an adaptation process, and the symptoms will be relieved.

cold food and hot food

Since the teeth that have just been washed are easy to be stained, do not eat dark foods such as chocolate, ketchup, soy sauce, and dark beverages such as tea, coffee, and cola for 1 to 2 weeks after teeth cleaning, and try not to smoke.

Desensitizing toothpaste can be used for soreness after washing teeth

Healthy teeth will not feel sore after scaling, but some people have calculus attached to the surface of their teeth, and calculus destroys the enamel on the surface of the teeth. Once the calculus is removed during scaling, the enamel is exposed in the mouth. sore feeling. If more tartar is attached, the enamel will be damaged more severely, and the soreness will be intensified.

desensitizing toothpaste

Generally, the soreness will gradually disappear within two weeks after teeth cleaning. During this time, it is necessary to reduce the stimulation to the teeth and eat less food that is too hot or too cold. This kind of soreness is called dentin sensitivity. You can use desensitized toothpaste within two weeks after cleaning your teeth. If it has not disappeared within two weeks, it is recommended to go to the hospital for examination.

Don’t forget to polish your teeth after cleaning

Tooth polishing

Many people feel that everything is fine after cleaning their teeth. In fact, there is an important link after cleaning—polishing, which can make the teeth completely smooth.

Because after scaling, the surface of the teeth is not smooth, and there are often leftover pigments and tiny calculus that are difficult to distinguish with the naked eye. Under the catalysis of calcium salts in saliva, the calculus will be deposited faster than before, and it must be polished To polish the tooth surface, and make the teeth bright, to achieve the purpose of delaying pigmentation. Informal dental clinics usually only do preliminary cleaning work, and omit the step of polishing the tooth surface.
