Hygiene

hygieneProfessional dental cleanings (scaling, root planing and polishing) are done by Registered Dental Hygienists. Your cleaning or hygiene appointment will include a dental exam by the dentist and:

• Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has formed and firmly attached to the tooth. Calculus forms above and below the gum line, and can be removed with appropriate dental instruments.

• Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produces toxins that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal (gum) disease and can effect your general health.

• Teeth polishing: This removes stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
