Routine Cleanings: Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Your teeth are continually bathed in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth. While this is a good thing, it also means that we tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth.

Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride Treatments help prevent tooth decay by strengthening the tooth structure. These treatments are beneficial for anyone, but can become necessary for people suffering from gingivitis or dry mouth, and are recommended for those with a history of frequently getting cavities. Fluoride used for professional treatment is of a higher concentration than of fluoride found in toothpaste or mouthwash.

The treatment process typically lasts only a few minutes. A gel or foam containing fluoride may be applied directly to the surface of the teeth with a cotton swab or in a rinse. Fluoride gels, mouthwashes, and supplements are also available with a prescription.

Tooth Care Tips

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist twice a year, or once every six months for a professional exam and cleaning. Taking care of your teeth is the key to a healthy, beautiful smile. Here are some tips to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

There are four basic steps to caring for teeth and gums:

1. Brushing - Brush at least twice a day. Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, especially if the bristles become worn.

2. Flossing - Floss at least once a day. Flossing gets rid of food and plaque between the teeth, where your toothbrush cannot reach.

3. Eating Right - Avoid snacking on sugary foods which can lead to tooth decay.

4. Visiting The Dentist - Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams
