Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings are extremely important to maintain excellent oral health.  Over time, bacteria begin to build plaque and caculus/tartar on your teeth, where they are able to live.  These same bacteria are the culprits for dental cavities, bad breathe, gingivitis, and gum disease.  The problem is removing the plaque and calculus where these bacteria live.  Once these bacteria establish a home on your teeth and along your gumline, it is almost impossible to remove them all at home.  In case of periodontal disease, scaling and root planing, also known as a deep cleaning, will be required.  Our firendly hygienists are extremely thorough in removing all plaque and calculus to prevent oral diseases these bacteria cause.
