Beautiful smiles begin with a professional cleaning from your hygienist. We want you to be able to smile with confidence once again!
Professional cleanings are performed by a hygienist with a series of dental instruments. The goal is to reduce your chances of gum disease by treating plaque buildup and polishing your pearly whites with professional tools.
Enhanced oral health
Reduced risk of early gum disease
Professional cleanings include three steps: scaling, brushing, and flossing. First, your hygienist will use a scaling instrument and a mirror to remove plaque on the teeth and along the gum line. Plaque is a white sticky substance composed of bacteria. If left untreated, plaque can lead to gum disease.
Then, your teeth will be brushed with a gritty toothpaste to remove remaining plaque. Professional flossing may be used to get into hard-to-reach places to remove food particles between the teeth.
It is essential that you are getting professional cleanings at least twice a year. This enhances your oral health and promotes a healthy smile for many years! Contact us today to make an appointment!
