Teeth Cleaning For a Healthy Smile
While dental emergencies can strike anyone and at anytime, patients committed to regular preventive care usually experience fewer problems over time. Professional cleanings with a registered dental hygienist allow us to take a proactive approach to your dental health, addressing issues while they are small and preventing further issues altogether. Despite your best efforts, deposits of mineralized plaque, known as tartar, adhere to areas of the teeth. These deposits create a nice home for millions of harmful bacteria. If left untreated, they can flood toxins into the gums and result in devastating chronic problems including tooth loss.
When tartar is removed, it doesn’t have the opportunity to produce irreversible damage. We use professional instruments and prescription strength polishing paste to gently buff away stains and plaque, leaving your teeth ultra-smooth and shiny. Since discoloration settles into the enamel of your teeth over time, this will help reduce yellowing and maintain glassy surface.
