No matter how well we brush or floss, food particles can become trapped between the teeth and under the gums. This food mixes with bacteria to form a film on the teeth known as plaque. Over time, the plaque can harden into a rock-like substance known as tartar. This tartar can lead to bone loss over time which may in turn lead to loose teeth and future extractions. The solution to this problem is visiting your dentist for regular dental cleanings.
Our dental team uses specialized dental instruments to remove the plaque and tartar that accumulates in your mouth. We always strive to make you comfortable during this procedure. At the end of the appointment, we will advise you as to how you can improve your dental hygiene and keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime!
