Dental Cleanings and Oral Hygiene
check mark          Tartar Removal - Calculus, or tartar, is hardened plaque that has firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and must be removed by a dental hygienist.
check mark Plaque Removal - Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on your teeth. It's a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris and saliva. If not periodically removed, the bacteria produce toxins that infect and inflame the gums - the warning signs of periodontal disease.
check mark Teeth Polishing - This removes stains and plaque that are not eliminated during tooth brushing.
check mark Home Care Instructions - You'll leave each dental visit with clear, easy-to-follow instructions to enhance the care of your teeth and smile. And if that's not enough, you receive a complimentary tooth brush!
