In order to keep your smile bright and healthy, patients should plan on having a professional dental cleaning every six months. This will remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums that you’re unable to take care of with your home dental care practice. Our routine dental cleanings include Scaling, Polishing, and Root Planing. Our goal is to build a healthy foundation for your smile by keeping your gums healthy and preventing gum disease.
- Scaling: Scaling, along with Root Planing, is part of what you’ll hear described as a ‘deep cleaning’. It gets below the gum line to remove plaque buildup.
- Polishing: Polishing your teeth removes stains and plaque, and brightens up your smile.
- Root Planing: When the tartar buildup on your teeth spreads below the gum line, Root Planing helps remove that tartar and get your gums back into a healthy state by cleaning and disinfecting the roots.
