Cleaning and Prevention

We believe that prevention is the best way to keep cavities and oral hygiene in check. With a proper routine for home care, and regular dental visits, you are significantly reducing your risk of decay and other oral diseases. At each dental exam you will have a routine cleaning which consists of:

Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has formed on the tooth and will be firmly attached. Calculus forms above and below the gum line, and can be removed with appropriate dental instruments.
Removal of plaque: 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 produces toxins that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease and can effect your general health!
Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
