Cleaning & Preventative Care
Professional cleanings involve removing plaque, tartar, and calcium deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Brushing your teeth regularly can control these build-ups and discourage bacteria growth, but regular professional cleanings thoroughly clean your teeth, further prevent bacteria growth, and help you maintain healthy and beautiful teeth longer. A thorough professional cleaning will involve de-scaling, cleaning, polishing, and often a topical fluoride treatment.
Another preventative dental procedure is applying sealants. A dental sealant is a thin film painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent cavities, and protects enamel from plaque and acids that cannot be reached by the bristles of your toothbrush.
