Tarter Buildup Removed During Your Dental Cleaning

DentalCare.com scrapes away at tarter. "Teeth tartar, also called dental calculus, is a crusty deposit that can trap stains on the teeth and cause discoloration." The strong bond it creates can only be removed by a dental professional. Tartar formation also creates difficulty in removing both new plaque and bacteria. Our dental hygienists will remove tarter above and below your gumline.

Why is it important to prevent dental calculus buildup?

DentalCare.com explains, "The surface of tartar is rough and makes it difficult to remove plaque with a toothbrush and floss. Tartar is unsightly... it can be yellow or even brown as stains accumulate. In addition, since it attracts plaque and makes cleaning at home difficult, it can contribute to tooth decay, bad breath and serious forms of gum disease."

What Happens After Tartar Removal?

Then, our dental hygienists will floss your teeth. And apply both a polishing compound and apply fluoride. Flossing prevents gingivitis.
