Dental cleanings differ from your at-home dental routine of brushing and flossing. During your dental cleaning our dental hygienists include:
- Removal of plaque to prevent gum inflammation and periodontal disease
- Removal of calculus (tartar) formed from plaque to prevent gingivitis
- Teeth polishing to remove stains and plaque
It is important that your teeth are regularly cleaned. Effective removal of plaque and calculus can only be done in a dentist’s office with the use of ultrasonic tools and specialized instruments. Contact the practice of C.R. (Chip) Edwards, Jr., D.D.S. if you would like to schedule your next teeth cleaning in Sanford, Florida.
