Regular cleanings by us, and proper care at home makes a great partnership for oral health! We'll do our part. You simply brush and floss regularly.
Brushing and flossing! Brushing removes plaque from a major portion of your teeth but it doesn’t get in between. That's where flossing comes in. Brushing & flossing routine twice a day for 5 minutes keeps your teeth and gums healthy.
It’s a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth. The bacteria use sugar and other carbohydrates to produce acids. Those attack the tooth and cause decay. These bacteria also release toxins, which can irritate and inflame gums. That causes them to turn red, swell and bleed easily.
These signs are typically associated with gingivitis. If ignored, gingivitis can progresses to a more advanced stage of gum disease called periodontitis. That’s when supportive structures deteriorate around the teeth.
Calculus (tartar) is formed when minerals in your saliva combine with plaque on the tooth surface. They harden into a rough, unsightly deposit. Calculus provides a rough surface. That aids in accumulation of additional plaque making it even more difficult to remove. Your toothbrush and floss can't eliminate calculus once it has formed. A vicious cycle starts that can only be stopped by having your teeth professionally cleaned to remove all calculus deposits, plaque and stains! The main purpose of the cleaning is to help prevent gum disease. It also improves your appearance by creating smooth, clean teeth and a bright smile.
