OUR SERVICESDental Cleanings

Plaque, or the sticky film of bacteria that covers your teeth, is the primary cause of gum disease and caries.

When plaque stays on the teeth for long periods of time and interacts with saliva, calculus (tartar) forms. Brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day are important factors in reducing the amount of disease-causing plaque. Regular cleanings are not only important in removing plaque and calculus, but also in reinforcing good oral hygiene, finding areas in the mouth that are being missed in brushing and flossing, and checking for early signs of gingivitis, periodontitis, and caries. Periodontitis often goes without symptoms until severe damage is done to the bone surrounding the teeth.

If it has been a while since your last cleaning, we may need to do a two or three step cleaning in order to remove excessive amounts of plaque and calculus or to adequately clean deeper periodontal pockets. After this we will try to get you on a maintenance or preventative program to keep your gums healthy.
