Our dental hygienists do thorough dental cleanings, while educating you how to keep your smile healthy. Exceptional care, a knowledgeable staff and comfortable surroundings are just a few reasons why patients choose us. Your dental cleaning appointment will include:
- Plaque Removal – A sticky, almost invisible film that forms on your teeth. Plaque is a growing colony of living bacteria, saliva and food debris. The bacteria produce toxins that infect and inflame the gums if not periodically removed – the warning signs of periodontal disease.
- Tartar Removal – Tartar, or calculus, is hardened plaque that has firmly attached to the tooth surface. Because calculus forms both above and below the gum line, it must be removed by a dental hygienist.
- Teeth Polishing –Stains and plaque that are not eliminated during tooth brushing are removed with polishing.
- Home Care Instructions – When you leave each dental visit you will have clear, easy-to-follow instructions to enhance the care of your teeth and smile. As if that were not enough, you also receive a complimentary tooth brush!
