Professional cleaning helps to remove plaque and bacteria from the teeth to ensure healthy gums and prevent cavities from forming. Our dentists will also give you tips on improving your techniques.
If left too long, bacteria around the teeth can damage the gums and lead to gum recession, tooth loosening and loss. This is called Periodontal disease. Depending on the severity, our dentists can help to educate and treat this disease for you by performing a deeper clean (root debridement).
Our teeth have crevices on their surfaces that catch food and cause cavities to form. Fissure sealants block these areas out and prevent unnecessary damage to our teeth. These are particularly important for children but are often performed on adults as well.
After your general check up and hygiene appointments, we may apply a fluoride or Tooth Mousse paste over your teeth to fight against early decay and strengthen your teeth.
