Teeth cleaning and polishing is a preventative dental procedure that prevents gum disease. It can also be used for the treatment of plaque, the silky coating that constantly forms on teeth as well as tartar removal. This is mostly done professionally when the plaque build-up is threatening to cause gum disease.
We however encourage and give advice on how to properly care for your teeth without the need of professional teeth cleaning services. These teeth hygiene routine pillars are explained to you and shown to you during or after your teeth cleaning appointment.
