Teeth Cleaning & Hygiene

Dental cleanings involve removing plaque and tartar deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Your teeth are continually moistened by saliva which contains calcium and other substances. These substances help strengthen and protect the teeth. Although this is good, it also means that we tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on our teeth. This chalky substance will eventually build up over time and can sometimes discolour your teeth.

If  tartar keeps building on your teeth, it unfortunately provides the right conditions for bacteria to thrive next to the gums. The purpose of the cleaning and polishing is basically to leave the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them. This means you have a better chance of keeping the teeth clean with everyday brushing and flossing.
