Every patient requires and can benefit from a dental cleaning. It is recommended that you see a dentist every six months for examination and cleaning. This cleaning helps prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. At your cleaning appointment, you are able to remove plaque, bacteria, and debris from the tooth surfaces that you are unable to get with your toothbrush.
Our dental cleanings include an ultrasonic scaler, hand scaler, and high-speed brush to polish. The ultrasonic scaler uses vibrations to remove calculus and tartar buildup along the gum line, between the teeth, and on the root surface. The polish at the end will remove the surface stain caused by coffee, tea, wine, or other dark-colored food and drink.
