cleanings and preventative services
Schedule routine cleanings every 6 months
We recommend that our patients receive regular routine cleanings in intervals of 6 months. Plaque, which is a colorless sticky substance that forms on the surface of the teeth, and tartar, which is a hard and crusty bacteria laden substance, needs to be removed to prevent decay and gum infections.
Tartar can only be removed professionally. We believe that with a routine dental prophylaxis several dental problems can be detected and prevented. We can help you maintain a healthy mouth and beautiful smile for years to come.
To do a professional prophylaxis, we use a variety of instruments used to remove all plaque, tartar, and food debris from above and just below the gum line. After instrumentation, we will perform a polishing to remove surface stain with a fluoride polishing paste.
Protect your teeth with sealants
A sealant is placed usually the chewing surface of the back teeth. Sealants are thin, clear or white plastic coatings that can be applied in a single visit. The grooves and pits on these chewing surfaces are highly susceptible to decay, especially in children and in teens. A sealant can be a very effective preventive way to prevent future cavities.
