Safe, Natural, Gentle
In our practice, we offer ozone (a non toxic disinfectant) pre brushing rinses. We customize each cleaning based upon an individual, their needs, oral pH, pocket depth. We use safe and natural materials and gentle methods to clean teeth without damaging them.
An essential part of preventive dentistry, professional dental cleanings are important to maintaining good oral health and deterring potentially serious dental problems.
What happens at a dental cleaning?
At a dental cleaning, a registered dental hygienist will gently clean your teeth using dental tools that are more effective than a toothbrush and floss. Even if you brush and floss properly, plaque buildup remains behind. In only a day or two, plaque hardens into tartar, an insoluble substance that can only be removed by professional dental cleanings. Our dental hygienists will clean your teeth—including hard-to-reach –areas—with expert precision. The goal of a dental cleaning is to remove tartar and plaque buildup that can cause gum disease and bad breath, called halitosis.
In addition to performing a dental cleaning, your hygiene appointment will include measuring the depth of periodontal pockets to determine whether you may have gum disease. The hygienist can also demonstrate proper techniques for brushing, flossing, and using a tongue scraper. If you have questions about herbal homecare products, ask the hygienist for recommendations.
