Our professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated.
This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth. Teeth cleaning (also known as prophylaxis, literally a preventive treatment of a disease) is a procedure for the removal of tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach with routine tooth brushing.
