Teeth Cleanings

A Routine, Simple Procedure For Healthy Teeth And Gums

Your potential for tooth damage increases the longer bacteria remains present on your teeth and gums. Teeth cleanings are a vital step to help eliminate the harmful, bacteria-filled plaque build-up.

First Line-Of-Defense

Cavity and decay prevention requires more than what daily brushing and flossing can provide. A tooth cleaning two times per year makes a significant difference in your oral health. It also supports your daily, at-home oral care.

Professional teeth cleanings help prevent periodontal (gum) disease as well. Removing harmful plaque and tartar beneath your gum line gives bacteria less opportunity to damage your gum and bone tissue.

Simple And Professional

Your dental hygienist is trained and equipped to remove tartar and plaque from your tooth surfaces and below your gum tissue. The scaling procedure gently breaks up tartar that’s attached to your teeth.

Removal of plaque and tartar is followed by a polishing procedure. The safe and slightly abrasive paste helps eliminate tooth stains. The procedure also smooths your tooth surfaces to prevent future plaque and tartar build-up between cleanings.

Fluoride is also provided. The topical application helps strengthen your tooth enamel against tooth decay. It’s gently brushed on each tooth following your teeth cleaning.
