Professional cleanings performed by a licensed dentist or hygienist are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Using specialized tools and training, our team at Mid Valley Dental will remove:
|Plaque build-up from the surfaces of teeth. Bacteria in the mouth form plaque, which collects on teeth and causes decay, gum disease and gingivitis
|Tartar from teeth surfaces. Tartar, or calculus, is plaque that has become hardened on the teeth; its removal requires scaling
|Surface stains from teeth through polishing
Some patients will require a deep cleaning due to gum disease and past periodontal treatments. Michael J. Wockenfus, DDS will review your past dental history and identify any issues you may need treatment for.
