Regular dental cleanings are a crucial part of preventive dental care. By removing plaque and tartar, your oral health is enhanced and your risk of gingivitis and periodontal diseases are reduced. We use disclosing agents to identify plaque. Then manual instruments are used to remove moderate plaque and tartar build-up, or an ultrasonic device to scale away heavier build-up. The cleaning is finished with polishing, a pleasant procedure that cleans the surface of teeth, removes stains, and leaves the mouth feeling clean and refreshed.
