Professional Dental Cleaning

Regular brushing and flossing are an excellent way to maintain the health of your gums and teeth in between office visits, but a healthy mouth also requires routine general and preventative care to keep the teeth and gums strong and disease-free. The purpose of a professional dental cleaning is to remove plaque(a thin growing biofilm of bacteria) from the teeth and below the gumline, as well as remove any tartar build-up. Tartar is plaque that has calcified over time and hardened. At this point, tartar is too tenacious to be removed with regular brushing and flossing, and instead requires the use of specialized dental instruments. Depending on your specific needs, our preventive hygiene services may also provide fluoride treatment and non-surgical periodontal therapy. Contact our office to reserve a check up and cleaning with Dr. Gary Senderovich and our team.
