Many people are afraid of tooth cleaning. Strange buzzing sounds and a sore jaw. It’s normal for you to worry. But often, a tooth cleaning is simple and painless. Find more issues about How do you clean your teeth in Turkey Dental news…

Dental cleaning is necessary not only for clean teeth, but also for a healthy mind and body. But even in such a routine procedure, there is a lot that people don’t know. Here’s what you need to know and what to expect from your dental cleaning.

Many people see the mouth as separate from the rest of their body. But the truth is, it’s all connected; and problems in your mouth are indicative of a disease in other parts of your body, including dementia and heart disease, or may even play a leading role in the disease.

Cleaning your teeth is an important part of keeping your mouth and the rest of your body healthy.


We need dental cleaning for two reasons;

  • To prevent diseases in the rest of the body, such as heart disease, dementia and complications of diabetes.
  • To prevent tooth loss.

The mouth is a completely different area from the whole body, and it is quite affected by the food we eat and the conversation we do all day. And that requires special attention.

Cleaning of teeth removes plaque and tartar formation. But the formation of too much plaque and tartar leads to gum disease.

Dry mouth is when your body’s immune system reacts to this accumulation of tartar with inflamed and bleeding gums. As gum disease progresses, it damages the bones and tissues in your mouth.

Dental cleaning is critical in preventing them.


Professional dental cleaning is done by Turkish dentists. Dentists use special tools to gently remove plaque and Tartars that form in the mouth without damaging the teeth. All dental instruments undergo strict cleaning, disinfection and sterilization procedures to ensure safety and quality control.

  • A dental mirror will be used to help the dentist examine hard-to-see areas in the mouth. Dental mirrors often have elongated handles attached to round mirrors. A dental mirror helps the dentist observe the teeth and gums for signs of irritation, swelling, decay, tartar or bleeding.
  • The most important tool used to clean teeth in general is an ultrasonic tool. This device uses vibrations to loosen larger pieces of tartar. It also sprays water into the mouth to clean loose debris through the mouth. The ends of the ultrasonic device are round and curved and are used with constant movements. The settings in the device can be adjusted according to the patient’s condition.
  • After large pieces of tartar are dislodged, the dentist switches to thinner hand tools. Often called toothpicks or ploughs, these tools are designed to eliminate small deposits in teeth and correct tooth surfaces.
  • Each tooth is checked separately to ensure that the Tartars are completely cleaned from all teeth.
  • The dentist polishes the teeth when the surfaces of the teeth are smooth. Using a rotating handpiece with a rotating soft head on the end, it performs the process of flattening and polishing the teeth.

In some cases, your dentist may also apply fluoride as a final step in cleaning. Fluoride, which comes in a variety of flavors including strawberry, chocolate, mint and cherry, is put in flexible foam trays and placed over the teeth. After 30 seconds of fluoride treatment, the patient is asked to spit out the remaining solution. Fluoride is used to strengthen teeth and protect against dental plaque and tartar.


For abscesses formed in the root of the tooth, Turkey dental root canal treatment is usually applied. Every dentist can perform root canal treatment. But endodontists in Turkey who are experts in this work do dental canal treatment. In some cases, only root canal treatments are not sufficient. In very advanced cases, a surgical procedure may be required.
