Dental Plaque Cleaning

Dental plaque (tartar) is the substance that forms between and on the teeth because of bacteria due to lack of cleaning.

Dental cleaning is the procedure for getting rid of dental calculus on teeth that is caused by certain foods and minerals in the salivary glands. This process may need be repeated over the years in the case that it re-occurs. Dental plaque cleaning procedure is done using ultrasonic devices.


Foods and drinks we consume in our daily lives can damage the dental enamel. Cigarettes, caffeine and other substances that are harmful to the dental enamel can cause stains or even rotting for the teeth. These stains that cannot be removed by brushing will eventually lead to problems such as rotting, receding gums, teeth loss and discoloring. Your dental cleaning should be done professionally after an examination performed by the expert doctors of Promed Clinic.


It is important to notice dental plaque forming on your teeth. In some cases it may be hard if the plaque is the same color as the teeth, but in most cases it is highly apparent.

Dental plaque, or tartar, is a substance that contains bacteria; therefore it is important to get rid of. In some cases, hard structure of tartar can be felt on the teeth surface. No matter how frequent you brush, it is impossible to get rid of. Only a dental plaque cleaning procedure, performed by an expert periodontist will be able to clean out the substance.

Dental plaque starts forming from the gums to the edge of teeth and has a crusty surface; therefore it is usually easily noticed. Its color can sometimes be yellow or brownish. If the tartar is not cleaned in regular intervals, it will cause infection on the gum and even bleeding down the road.


Even if we brush regularly minerals in foods, drinks and even our salivary glands can cause dental plaque to form on our teeth. It needs to be cleaned by an expert. After a while dental plaque can re-occur, therefore it is recommended to repeat this process every 6 months.

The first step of dental plaque cleaning is an examination by the Promed Clinic expert doctors. After a thorough examination tartar and plaque layers on the teeth are removed using various tools. These tools clean out the tartar and the plaque without damaging the teeth.


Dental plaque cleaning procedure starts by using ultrasonic devices that won’t harm the teeth. Thanks to the vibration caused by these devices dental plaque layer is cracked and large formations of tartar are separated from the teeth. Afterwards you spit out the dislodged tartar and plaque with some water we spray on your teeth. Next step is removing the small scale formations with appropriate medical tools. Then we apply a tooth paste containing fluoride to cleanse the teeth and the procedure is complete. There are no side effects or pain in this treatment. Some may experience mild tingling, but only temporarily. The process takes about 10 minutes.


As a continuation of the treatment applied by dentists, home whitening sessions can take place with the apparatus provided by your dentist. It is a situation determined according to the system applied and your doctor will inform you about it.
However, some teeth whitening methods applied by the person himself, without the advice of a doctor, damage the tooth enamel. For this reason, you should not apply the methods that your doctor does not recommend at home.

Sensitivity may occur within 24 hours after the whitening process applied to the teeth. However, it is important to know whether there is sensitivity in your teeth before the whitening process.
You should be careful not to consume hot and cold foods for a while after the procedure. However, it is not a very painful and serious sensitivity. After a while, this sensitivity disappears on its own. In some cases, it can be prevented by using a desensitizing gel.

Depending on the repetitive yellowing, the procedure can be performed again after a certain time. But it is not recommended to do it too often. For this reason, it is recommended to stay away from beverages and substances that will accelerate yellowing, such as tea, coffee, cigarettes, after the bleaching process. If dental care is done well, the results of the whitening process will last for several years.

With the bleaching process, yellowing caused by food and environmental factors until that day is eliminated. After the procedure, you will have healthier-looking, whiter teeth. However, depending on factors such as food, drinks, tartar formation, age, yellowing may occur again over time.

Whitening is not applied to people who have gingival problems and have problems with the root of the tooth. People who have severe tooth sensitivity, have excessive cavities or are pregnant cannot be whitened. This procedure can be done easily over the age of 18, it should not be applied under the age of 15.

When teeth yellowing is seen, whitening can be applied from the age of 18. After this age, there is no harm in performing the procedure because the dental structures of the people are settled. It is possible to get rid of the loss of self-confidence caused by tooth color changes with a single operation.

There are many causes of yellowing teeth. Sometimes the natural color of our teeth that we have genetically may not be white, and sometimes the foods we consume can color the surface of the teeth and cause them to turn yellow. Reasons such as not brushing the teeth correctly and regularly, smoking, consumption of tea, coffee, sugary food, and excessive consumption of antibiotics and similar drugs affect tooth color negatively.

It is applied by specialist dentists, in a clinical setting and using special medical apparatus. The safest method for whitening teeth is clinical applications. Tooth tone is opened in the form of gels applied to the surface of the teeth and laser beam application on the gel. In addition to clinical treatment, there may be sessions that need to be continued at home. It is important to inform and advise your doctor on this matter.

The color tone differences of the teeth, the coloration set on the teeth by the food, can be seen even in the teeth that are constantly brushed and cared for. In such cases, problems may be felt in social life. The person may not want to laugh and talk, may not want to enter social environments. People who do not have a veneer on their teeth can have both healthy and white teeth with the teeth whitening method performed in a clinical setting.
