Dental Cleanings and Oral Hygiene
The friendly, knowledgeable dental hygienists at Dental Partners of Brookline perform a thorough professional dental cleaning, as well as teach you how to continue to keep your smile healthy. Comfortable surroundings, exceptional care, and a welcoming staff are just a few of the reasons patients rank Dental Partners of Brookline as one of the top dental practices in the nation. And when you come for your dental cleaning appointment, you’ll understand why. Your dental cleaning appointment will include:
- Tartar Removal — Calculus, or tartar, is hardened plaque that has firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and must be removed by a dental hygienist.
- Plaque Removal — Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on your teeth. It’s a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. If not periodically removed, the bacteria produce toxins that infect and inflame the gums, the warning signs of periodontal disease.
- Teeth Polishing — This removes stains and plaque that are not removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
- Home Care Instructions — You’ll leave each dental visit with clear, easy-to-follow instructions on how to properly care for your teeth and continue to keep your winning smile – and a complimentary tooth brush!
