Dental Cleaning:
Dental cleanings are performed by one of our hygienists and usually last around one hour. Dental cleanings include the removal of plaque and tartar from the tooth surface. Dental cleanings may occur every three to six months depending on your personal needs to ensure plaque build-up is kept in check.

Periodontal Disease (Gingivitis)
Periodontal disease is an infection that affects the tissues and bone that support the teeth. Treatment may include a deep cleaning with local anesthetic. Untreated gum disease may lead to more extensive bone loss or tooth extraction.

Many people have narrow grooves in their teeth that are very hard to clean even with a toothbrush. In these cases the dentist will clean the tooth surface and use a sealant to seal and smooth the tooth surface so it can be cleaned by brushing. If not treated the grooves could develop tooth decay eventually leading the need for a filling or more serious corrective procedures.

Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?
In general, toothpastes use mild abrasives to remove stains on the surface of your teeth. In addition, whitening toothpaste contain chemical polishing agents that allow them to remove even more surface stains; so yes, they do work! Keep in mind though that they only remove stains on the surface of teeth, not deep inside the tooth. Whitening toothpastes can actually lighten your tooth color; but only by one shade because they generally do not contain a bleaching agent. At home whitening kits can help; they utilize hydrogen peroxide to remove both surface stains and stains deeper in the teeth. Remember, whitening toothpastes and store bought kits cannot produce the results you'll get from having whitening procedures in your dentist's office. Also, since everyone's teeth are different, everyone will have a different result with whitening.
