Cleaning & Prevention

Let us prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date

 


 

The best way to reduce decay and gum disease, and to maintain the health of your mouth is to attend regular dental appointments. This is called preventive dentistry, where we catch any potential problems before they develop, and so the amount of treatment required is reduced. This means you can avoid having so many extractions and fillings, and are more likely to keep your own teeth for life. Cleaning & Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile.

 

Cleaning & Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile. At Streatfield Dental Surgery your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

 

 

Removal of calculus (tartar):

 

Calculus is plaque that gets hardened overtime and harbors bacteria. It is caused by the continual accumulation of minerals from saliva and becomes firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can be threatening to the health of gums. Calculus can only be removed with special dental instruments.

 

 

Elimination of plaque:

 

Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!

 

 

Teeth Polishing:

 

Teeth Polishing is removing stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
