Dental Cleanings

  • Dental Cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and calculus deposits that have built up on the teeth over time.
  • We tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth, this chalky substance will eventually build up over time.
  • Usually it is tooth colored and can easily be mistaken as part of the teeth, but it also can vary from brown to black in color.
  • The purpose of a cleaning and polishing is to leave the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them and you have¬† better chance of keeping the teeth clean during your regular home care.
