We are Dr. Roze Dental Clinic in Dubai and in this article we would like to explain what do dentists do their job.

What does the dentist do?

The dentist is a doctor who has trained in the care of teeth. When you go to the dentist for general control, you will look at your teeth and gums to see if you have any problems. The dentist will also want to make sure that your teeth are forming properly as you grow.

It is important that you go to the dentist every 6 months to make sure that you are taking good care of your teeth and that your teeth and gums are healthy.

What happens at the dentist’s office?

You’ll wait in a room and then they’ll call you by your name. Then you will go to another room to be examined and you will sit in a very large and comfortable chair that will recline. The chair has a place to support the head and plenty of space to stretch the legs. On the side of the chair, there will be a kind of pool with a glass that you will use to rinse your mouth after you clean your teeth.

During the dental examination, you will clean your teeth, floss and fix if you have cavities.

Cleaning and flossing

The first person you will see in the dentist’s office is the dental assistant. A dental assistant is a person skilled in keeping teeth and gums clean and healthy.

The dental assistant will look into your mouth and make sure your teeth are growing properly and that the gums are healthy. They will point you to a large, powerful light into the inside of your mouth so the dental assistant can see the inside of your mouth.

The dental assistant will clean and polish your teeth, using small dental tools such as a scraper, a mirror, and a special toothbrush. The scraper will be used to remove tartar from your teeth. Tartar is the thin, sticky layer that lines the teeth and contains bacteria that builds up on the teeth over time. Tartar that is not removed from the teeth can cause cavities.

Then the teeth are brushed and the floss is flushed. The dental assistant will brush your teeth with a special toothbrush and toothpaste. The toothbrush has a small round tip that rotates continuously to clean your teeth. Toothpaste is likely to have the same taste as the one you use at home, but the consistency is somewhat different; rather sandy.

Then the dental assistant will floss you and show you how to brush and floss at home. Floss is a wax-coated thread that is passed between the teeth to remove food scraps that the toothbrush could not clean.
