Teeth Cleaning & Polishing

Teeth Cleaning & Polishing

A Dental Cleaning is one of the most important aspects of your semi-annual dental checkup and is your dentist’s first signal that something may be wrong with your oral health.

Your cleaning appointment will include a thorough dental cleaning which includes:

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

Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!

Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling. It is important to have a dental cleaning by a professional dental hygienist at least twice per year.

The Importance of Teeth Cleaning:

Professional teeth cleaning is vital for removing plaque and tartar buildup that cannot be effectively eliminated through regular brushing and flossing alone. It helps prevent cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and promotes overall oral health.
