Achieving Dental Excellence…With A Holistic Touch
Do you love having a healthy mouth and beautiful smile? Regularly scheduled professional cleanings are critical to maintaining your oral health.
What to expect during a dental cleaningGallery Dental Art’s hygienists have extensive experience and training to ensure the best examination and cleaning. Our hygienist will examine your mouth, ask you about your oral health since the last visit, paying special attention to any changes or discomfort you report, and perform the following procedures:
- Remove plaque. Plaque is a sticky film containing bacteria that attack tooth enamel and eventually cause cavities. The bacteria also produce toxins that inflame the gums, leading to periodontal disease.
- Remove tartar. Plaque left on teeth over time hardens and becomes calculus (tartar). It can only be removed with dental tools. Tartar can cause gums to bleed, leading to periodontal disease.
- Polish teeth. This final step removes minor stains and any remaining plaque, making teeth their whitest and brightest!
