Cleanings

Regular dental cleanings are the best form of preventive oral care. Cleanings should be scheduled every 6 months. The following services are all performed during a regular cleaning.

 

Removal of Tartar: Tartar is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and has become firmly attached to the tooth surface. Tartar forms both above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.

Removal of Plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It produces toxins that inflame the gums.  If not properly removed plaque buildup can lead to the start of periodontal disease.

Teeth Polishing: Polishing of your teeth will remove stains and plaque that is not otherwise removed during brushing and scaling
