Will washing teeth make the gap between the teeth bigger and bigger?

Many people have such doubts: I didn’t feel that I had “interdental gaps” before I washed my teeth. Why did I find that my interdental gaps widened after I washed my teeth?

In fact, you think the widened gaps between the teeth are so wide before the teeth are cleaned, and the teeth cleansing is just to show the true appearance of your teeth.

The gap between the teeth is widened because of dental calculus. Dental calculus is calcified or calcified plaque and sediment deposited on the surface of the tooth, just like the scale on a teacup or teapot, it will become thicker over time.

Dental calculus most often grows near our gums and between our teeth, and it will continue to stimulate the gums, causing the gums to shrink. Over time, the gap between the teeth becomes larger and larger.

The essence of tooth cleaning is to remove dental calculus. The calculus that was originally “blocked” between the teeth was washed away, and the gaps between the teeth were exposed. In addition, due to the shrinkage of the gums, some people will feel the teeth running wind when speaking, and others will feel the teeth sensitivity. This is also the cause of dental calculus and has nothing to do with the washing itself.

If dental calculus is always present, it will continue to irritate the gums, continue to aggravate the inflammation of the gums, cause more serious gum atrophy, and even cause tooth loss.

Teeth cleaning is not done once and for all, you need to clean your teeth regularly, usually about once a year.

After washing the teeth, many people will feel that their teeth are more sensitive to cold stimulation, but they don’t need to worry too much. Most people will recover on their own within two or three days, and a few have serious gum atrophy themselves. It is recommended to see a doctor after washing their teeth to see if they need treatment.
