During your cleaning we will eliminate any tartar build up on the surface of your tooth. Tartar that builds around your gum lines can cause decay and other dental problems.
Plaque is a buildup of bacteria around your tooth. It can consist of debris (food), sugar, saliva and other living bacteria. Plaque can cause damage to your gums and can initiate periodontal disease. Having a professional cleaning to remove plaque every 6 months is essential.
Polishing the teeth
Due to build up of plaque and consumption of certain foods our teeth can begin to stain and become encompassed with bacteria. Polishing will remove plaque and stains that are not removed during brushing.
