Dental hygienists at Chalfont Dentistry perform thorough dental cleanings and teach you how to keep your smile healthy. Comfortable surroundings, exceptional care, and a knowledgeable staff are just a few reasons why patients choose our practice for their dental care. 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 eliminated during tooth brushing and flossing.
- Home Care Instructions – You’ll leave each dental visit with clear, easy-to-follow instructions to enhance the care of your teeth and smile. And if that’s not enough, you receive a complimentary tooth brush!
We also use dental x-rays to evaluate your teeth and make sure you are receiving the dental care you need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are crucial to maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that you receive treatments for any damaging dental condition as soon as possible. Our dentist recommends that you visit us every six months for a routine cleaning and exam.
