Teeth cleaning is the removal of tartar and dental plaque from teeth to prevent cavities and gum disease. It is part of a complete program of oral hygiene that includes flossing and brushing daily at home.
Regular teeth cleaning by our dental hygienist removes tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult for a patient to reach. Our professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing.
