Hygiene

hygieneA Registered Dental Hygienist is responsible for dental cleanings. Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

Removal of plaque:

Plaque is a sticky film that forms on the teeth. It’s a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria and their byproducts inflame the gums. This inflammation could lead to the beginning of periodontal (gum) disease.

Removal of calculus (tartar):

Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for sometime and is calcified onto the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line, and can only be removed or scaled off with special dental instruments.

Teeth polishing:

Removes stain and plaque that’s not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling of the teeth.
